Date: 7/6/19 6:18 pm From: Christopher Loscalzo via CTBirds <ctbirds...> Subject: [CT Birds] COA/CBS Workshop
Combined COA/CT Botanical Society Bird/Plant Workshop
Saturday, July 20th, 2019 from 8:00 am to 11:00 am
Wimisink Preserve, Sherman
Spend a morning with plant enthusiasts and learn about the plants upon which birds depend while we birders show them the birds that visit the plants that they know and love. On this joint event of the CT Botanical Society and the Connecticut Ornithological Association we'll visit a freshwater wetland where bitterns and other marsh birds have bred. We may also visit the nearby Herrick Trail to look for woodland species. Meet at the parking lot to the Wimisink Preserve on Route 39, just south of Route 55 (1/2 mile west of Route 7) in Sherman. The workshop is free and open to COA members and non-members alike. Leaders: John Anderson, CBS, C: 860-248-1053; Chris Loscalzo at: <mailto:<closcalz...> <closcalz...> and 203 389-6508.
*Please watch for an update a few days before this event that will report on the status of the trail leading to the south observation platform at the preserve. It is in need of repair that we hope will take place before our workshop!
