Upcoming Local Trips

Below is a list of upcoming local field trips for the weekend of July 4-5, 2009:

Protectors of Pine Oak Woods
Sunday, July 5, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Corson's Brook Woods
Enjoy a morning walk in a rich woodland. We will be looking at and identifying various trees and shrubs. Of special interest will be the rare Bladdernut Hickory, Black Walnut trees and ferns.
Bring water and bug repellant, and wear sturdy shoes.
Meet at the corner of Jasper St. and Forest Hill Road.
Call Cathy Zelonis for more information 917-596-4198.

Sunday, July 5, 12 noon to 2 p.m.
Page Avenue Beach and Woods
Depending on the weather, we may walk the beachfront and/or through the woodlands. In addition to examining evidence of the recent and long term history of the area, we’ll study the geology of the beach as well as the flotsam and jetsam accumulated at the high tide lines to see what nature's debris has to tell us. It may be muddy so dress appropriately. Pick up shells and beach pebbles.
Meet at the parking lot at the end of Page Avenue on the left. Find the strange green branched young tree at the side of the parking lot.
For more information phone Dick Buegler 718-761-7496 or Clay Wollney at 718-869-6327.
