Field Trip to Bledsoe Creek State Park & Old Hickory Lake – Saturday, 19 March 2022

On Saturday, 19 March 2022, 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 Visitors Center parking lot at 8:30 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.
