The John W Sellars Chapter of TOS is heading to Edgar Evins State Park in Dekalb County on Saturday, 20 May 2023 in search of the elusive Cerulean Warbler and other spring migrants. The best birding is in early morning, so we will gather at the Edgar Evins SP Visitors Center / Office between 7:30 and 8:00 AM.

There are numerous hiking trails throughout the park ranging in difficulty from easy to moderately strenuous.  Likewise, 5 miles of tree-lined paved roads twist and turn through the wooded park offering many excellent birding opportunities. Of course the weather during May can likewise range from “easy to moderately strenuous” so dress accordingly. As always, bring binoculars, a scope if you have one, water, and snacks.

The park office is located at: 1630 Edgar Evins State Park Rd, Silver Point, TN 38582.
