Audrey Carroll Sanctuary
In mid July many birds have finished raising at least one
brood of young, while others will be working on a second or third. There
should be plenty of juvenile birds trying to make a living on the
various seeds, berries, and insects growing within the sanctuary. If we are lucky, we will see the large wild turkey flock that has been making daily forays to our small Gatehouse pond. We will also hike back to the back marsh to look for the red-headed woodpecker family discovered last week. This walk is not strenuous (about 1.5 miles round trip), but will require shoes that you don't mind getting just a bit muddy.
July is also a good time for butterflies. We should be able to find a dozen species or more within the woodlands and meadows. Come see what mid-summer has to offer at the Audrey Carroll Sanctuary.
People of all ages are welcome. Meet at 9 a.m. at the entry gate to the sanctuary at 13030 Old Annapolis Road (just east of Detrick Road) in Mt. Airy. No
rest room facilities are available, and the walk will be cancelled in
the event of inclement weather. For further information contact David
Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-549-7082.
