The Fresh Market
Field Trip Leader: Doug Rogers
Meet in the parking lot in front of Fresh Market at 7:30am. We will carpool to Madison from there.
Please join us for a fall bird walk on the property of Monticello Bird Club members, Richard Tieg and Myrlene Staten, in Madison. Myrlene has assumed the position of MBC Membership chair, and she and Richard have graciously invited us to their lovely home. We have never birded this property before, but we should encounter some some fall surprises in this very “birdy,” rural habitat.
Our generous hosts have kindly offered to serve us refreshments as well! So please, RSVP to trip leader Doug Rogers at 434.409.8156 or email him at [email protected] to reserve your place! You may call our hosts, Richard and Myrlene. if you have any questions at 540-948-9060.
Below are driving directions, in case you don’t want to carpool. (Note: Myrlene and Richard will be expecting us around 8:15am. The 7:30am time listed above is for gathering at Fresh Market to carpool.)
