Friends of the Parkway stopped by for a visit. They indicated the Parkway
would remain open south of the Peaks for the foreseeable future, and

copy of the Forest Focus which has a article about “Counting Birds”.
The author interviewed Bob Epperson and had information about the Hawkwatch
in the article.
