Fall walk: Knox Wetland Preserve

September 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

A broad boardwalk, accessible for people with mobility issues, takes us through prime birding habitat, where we can see species like Virginia Rail, Sora, Common Gallinule, American and Least Bittern, as well as Swamp Sparrow and Marsh Wren.  The boardwalk enables us to get close to marsh/wetlands plants that are usually difficult to see, such as arrowhead, watermeal, cattail, water avens, and five species of pondweed.  Leader: Sigrin Newell.  Directions: Located off Street Rd., between Rt. 252 / Knox Cave Road and Rt. 255 / Knox-Gallupville Rd., adjacent to the lower portion of Knox Town Park, where there’s a small parking lot on the left, but it is necessary to walk along the road to the entrance to the boardwalk trail.  There is room for about two “special needs” cars at the beginning of the boardwalk.  From there it is a short walk over dry gravel to get to  the start of the boardwalk.

There is no pre-registration.  For information email [email protected].
