Date: 10/4/17 9:14 pm From: Mascoma Chapter NH Audubon <mascomabirds...> Subject: [NHBirds] Bird Walk Saturday at Bedell Bridge
This is a reminder that NH Audubon's Mascoma Chapter is to hold a bird walk
at Bedell Bridge State Historic Site on Saturday, October 7, 2017. The walk
is to start at 7:00 a.m. and end about 9:00 a.m. This walk, free and open
to the public, will be co-hosted by Mascoma Chapter Steering Committee
members Blake Allison, Jeff MacQueen, and George Clark. All experience
levels are welcome. The walking is level traveling over a dirt road and
lawn-like grassy areas. Bring binoculars and/or spotting scopes as you
prefer. Water is recommended. In the unfortunate case of steady rain, the
event will be cancelled.
People from southern locales wishing to carpool are to meet at 6:30 a.m. in
the “Park ‘n Ride” lot on the Vermont side of the Ledyard Bridge in
Norwich. We anticipate return to the Norwich lot before 10 a.m.
Alternatively, If you wish to travel directly to the historic site, there
are two routes from the south. In New Hampshire, take NH Route 10 north to
the Haverhill Green. Another quarter mile farther ahead on the left, you'll
see Meadow Road. Turn onto it and follow it about a mile to the boat launch
parking area where walk participants will assemble.
As another alternative, take I-91 in Vermont north to Exit 16 - Bradford/VT
Route 25. At the bottom of the ramp, turn right onto Route 25. Follow it
eastward about a mile, crossing US Route 5 and passing Farm-Way, before
traversing the Connecticut River into NH. A quarter mile farther, River
Road will appear on your left. Follow River Road northward to its junction
with NH Route 10. Turn left onto Route 10. Then continue to Meadow Road on
your left, and follow it about a mile to the boat launch parking area.
