Tuesday, April 27, at 7:30 a.m.—POULTNEY— Join Rutland County Audubon for a bird walk at Slate Valley Trails. All are welcome. There will be friendly birders in the group who will happily share their knowledge. Bring water and a snack (and insect repellent if you use it), binoculars, cameras, field guides, if you have them. There is usually an opportunity to cut it short if you need to leave early. We walk at a slow pace with lots of opportunities for observing and photographing. Limited to eight people so contact Joel Tilley to reserve a spot: [email protected] (preferred method), or 802-598-2583, evenings 7-8 p.m. We will be abiding by the most recent state of Vermont guidelines for social distancing. Please wear masks/face covering. Meet at the Fairgrounds Trail parking area (131 Town Farm Road, Poultney) at 7:30 a.m. The hike will be about 3 miles on easy terrain.
