Changes announced for March nature programs
Jefferson County Naturalist Therese Cummiskey has announced several of the Jefferson County Conservation programs scheduled in March have been canceled.
“I am not having any maple syruping programs,” wrote Cummiskey in an email this morning, “and the Waterfowl Watch and the bison program have been canceled.”
The bison ecology program, which had been planned for Saturday at the Fairfield Public Library and announced in the Thursday edition of The Ledger, will be rescheduled, Cummiskey wrote.
The Waterfowl Watch, to watch migrating ducks and geese at area wetlands and ponds, had been set for March 16.
“We are still planning on the Young Birders program in March, though please note the change in date and time and contact person,” wrote Cummiskey.
The Young Birders Cedar View Wetlands program, originally planned for March 20, now will be held March 16.
The Young Birders Club will meet at 9:30 a.m. in the Cedar View Trail parking lot with team members Diane Porter, Gay Chapman and Meg Earsley for a visit to watch the ducks in the wetlands.
Participants should wear boots.
To register, email Earsley at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 472-4421.
The Young Birders Club is open to all bird lovers ages 8-18, but those ages 11 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
