Blue Hills Farm
Field Trip Leader:
Join Amy Neale on her farm in southern Madison County for a morning hike scouting for fall birds. We’ll look for passing migrants, sparrows, raptors and resident birds. Depending on our route, be prepared for walking on some uneven terrain, up hills and through damp fields.
If you want to join forces for carpooling to Madison County, meet others at the Cville location below that is closer to you. Be prepared to leave this location no later than 7:30, so that we’ll be convened and ready to hike with Amy by 8:15.
- Parking lot – Jimmy John’s east end of Pantops Shopping Center
- Parking lot – Fresh Market, 100 Albemarle Square
