FIELD TRIP -Ascend
February 17 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
Ascend Wildlife Refuge Birding.
Sharhonda Owens will lead us through the Ascend Wildlife Refuge in search of wintering birds.
Long pants and closed toe shoes are required. You must sign up by contacting Lucy Duncan at 932-4792 by Monday, Feb. 12th and leave your name, phone and number of participants in your party.
We will ride in their vehicles, so attendance is limited.
Expect easy walking. Meet at 8:00 a.m. in the parking lot of Ascend Neighborhood Park located on the north side of Old Chemstrand Road before reaching the main gate.
Ascend will provide a picnic lunch.
Field trips are open to the public and free of charge, but contributions are appreciated.
All experience levels are welcome. Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope.
Sunscreen, insect protection, appropriate shoes, hat, water, and snacks or lunch are recommended on all trips.
Please refrain from wearing scented cologne, perfumes or aftershave on field trips.
It distracts from the experience in nature, and some participants are highly sensitive to it.
Carpooling is encouraged.
