After a busy week at the State Fair we will celebrate with a field trip. On Saturday we will do a hiking field trip from Thain Creek in the Highwoods. It will also serve as a scouting trip for a couple bird walks UMBA is guiding for B.O.W. (Becoming and Outdoor Woman) the following weekend. We will explore up the creek and up a hill starting from Thain Creek. We will be walking through several different habitats. We did this walk earlier this year - before any leaves were out. It will be nice to compare the two trips.
We will meet in the 4B's parking area, between 4B's and Conlins. Be ready to leave at 7 AM. Dress for the weather, for some walking along mountain trails and possibly some wet ground. Return is anticipated to be early to mid-afternoon (2-3 PM). Bring drink and food accordingly. We'll try to find a scenic lunch spot.
