Nature Walk

Saturday, June 18

9 to 11 a.m. Scarlett Tanager

Fred Archibald Nature Sanctuary

A nature walk at the Fred Archibald Audubon Sanctuary, sponsored by the Audubon Society of Central Maryland, will lead us into some of the more remote parts of the 140-acre sanctuary. We will cover about three miles and see not only the open meadows but the mature forest along Cherry Run, where giant Sycamores and Oaks provide nesting places for Barred Owls, and Wild Turkeys forage for acorns. We will also see birds such as Bluebirds, Tree Swallows, Purple Martins, and House Wrens using nest boxes. Be prepared for a fairly brisk pace!


Meet at 9 a.m. at the entrance to the sanctuary, which is on the east side of Boyer's Mill Road, one mile north of Rte. 144 in New Market. Wear sturdy shoes and clothing appropriate for the predicted weather. There are no rest room facilities at the sanctuary, and the walk will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather. For more information contact Bob Schaefer at 301-831-5660 or, or see the Audubon web site.
