Claymont birding trip Feb. 22
The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor a birding field trip on the historic Claymont property outside Charles Town on Saturday, Feb. 22. The trip will begin at 8:30 a.m. It will be free and open to anyone with an interest, regardless of their birding skills. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged but not required. To register, go to the Society’s website at www.potomacaudubon.org.
Participants should plan to meet the trip leader on the Claymont entrance road where a wetland meets the access driveway. The entrance is located at 667 Huyett Road; it is marked by a street sign that says “Claymont Mansion.”
The trip will involve about three miles of moderate hiking. It should offer opportunities to see waterfowl and wintering birds.
This trip will be conducted snow, rain or shine. Participants should dress appropriately for the prevailing weather and bring drinking water. Those who need binoculars should let the trip leader know ahead of time, as loaner binoculars will be available.
