DCNR, Bureau of Forestry, will host an event for the public, Sunday, May 2, 2010, at 8:00 a.m. The event will be held at the Kerper Tract (also known as Redbud Valley) of the Buchanan State Forest, near Big Cove Tannery, seven miles south of McConnellsburg. The walk will be led by Mike and Laura Jackson, longtime birders and members of the National Audubon Society.
The group will meet at the parking area along state Route 928 near the new footbridge over Big Cove Creek at 8:00 a.m. The event is free and participants should dress appropriately. Participants may want to bring binoculars and a field guide. The walk may last up to three hours and all age groups may participate, as the walk will be moderate.
