Woods Reservoir & Franklin Co. Field Trip – 16 December 2017

The Lebanon Birding Club is headed to Woods Reservoir in Franklin County on Saturday, 16 December 2017 in search of waterfowl and other feathered friends.

We will meet in the parking lot of the Nature Center at Cedars of Lebanon State Park at 7:00 AM, then carpool or caravan to the Burger King in Manchester (I-24 exit 114 – located at 56 Expressway Drive, Manchester, TN 37355). Or meet the group at Burger King by 8:00 AM.

We will proceed from there to Woods Reservoir to look for ducks, loons and whatever else we find. It is 60 miles from Cedars of Lebanon State Park to the Burger King in Manchester so be ready to leave Cedars of Lebanon at 7am. We can also check out a few spots in Coffee County if the group wishes. Hillsboro Pond, the Sod Farm at Bark Camp Barrens, and a few other nearby places are all possible. There are plenty of places to grab lunch in Manchester, TN

If you plan on attending, please let us know by completing the sign-up form at the link below. And if you would prefer to carpool from Cedars of Lebanon State Park, please let us know in the comments section of the form. Thanks, and I hope to see you on the 16th.

From December 14 through January 5 each year, tens of thousands of volunteers throughout the Americas take part in an adventure that has become a family tradition among generations. Families and students, birders and scientists, armed with binoculars, bird guides and checklists go out on an annual mission – often before dawn. For over one hundred and thirteen years, the desire to both make a difference and to experience the beauty of nature has driven dedicated people to go out and count birds on the annual Christmas Bird Count.
