Sunday NABA Field Trip Rescheduled

Since the forecasts predict more sun for Monday than Sunday, tomorrow’s field trip to Dennis Briede’s property has been rescheduled to 10:00 on Monday.

Monday, September 3, 2018: Dennis Briede has again offered to host a field trip to his property (Mount ‘N’ Meadow) in Blairstown on Monday, September 3. Meet at 10:00am for butterflying (anyone who wishes to come earlier for birding is welcome). The address is 52 Gaisler Road, Blairstown. Bring lunch and your own seating. We are usually treated to Leonard’s and Ocola Skippers in Dennis’s garden, and a variety of other species in his beautiful meadows. Those who wish can visit White Lake in the afternoon.

Directions: Take Route 80 to exit 12 (Hope-Blairstown). At the end of the exit ramp bear right onto Route 521 N for several miles to Blairstown. Turn left onto Route 94 S. Go a very short distance to the traffic light and turn right. Be careful here. Take the 90 degree right; DO NOT FOLLOW ROUTE 521 WHICH MAKES A BACKSLANTING RIGHT. Go past the church, up the hill, and turn right at the top onto Route 602 (Millbrook Road). In a short distance bear left (which is still Route 602-Millbrook Road). Go a total of about 4.2 miles on Milbrook Road (Route 602) to a left turn at Gaisler Road. Go about 1 mile to the driveway at 52 Gaisler Road on the right side of the road. Pull in to the driveway and park on the left side, or by the garage- but not on the right side of the driveway!.
