Field Trip to Bledsoe Creek State Park & Old Hickory Lake – Saturday, 18 March 2023

On Saturday, 18 March 2023, the John W Sellers Chapter of TOS will gather at Bledsoe Creek State Park for some birding around the park, then head west to various hotspots  around Old Hickory Lake.

Our route will include some of the following: Bledsoe Creek, Drakes Creek, Sanders Ferry Park, Cages Bend, Station Camp Creek, and Lock 4. If there’s time, we might also visit Tyree Access, Laguardo, and Davis Corner in northern Wilson County on our way back home.  And for you hardcore birders, there’s always Cedar Creek and Shute’s Branch.

We will meet at the Bledsoe Creek State Park Visitors Center parking lot at 8:00 AM. They have an observation deck with good views of the tailwaters of Bledsoe Creek & Old Hickory Lake. There are also numerous trails throughout this small park, some of them paved, so wear your hiking boots or walking shoes.

Anyone and everyone interested in birding is welcome to participate in this field trip. You do not have to be a member of the Lebanon Birding Club or any other organization to participate in any of our outings.
