The Village Creek Drying Beds (VCDB) are open again, so take advantage of a birding walk there with Jim Sipiora while you can.

Where: Meet in the parking lot of the Dunlop Sports Center on the south side of Green Oaks Blvd. between Davis Dr. and Fielder Rd. in Arlington, across from the entrance to Village Creek Drying Beds.

When: Wednesday, March April 12, 2017

Time: Start birding at Dunlop Sports Center at 7:15 a.m., then bird VCDB from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (come to one or both)

Leader: Jim Sipiora

Description: After meeting in the Dunlop Sports Center parking lot** we will bird that park first (except Summer schedule as listed above), then walk across the street to VCDB. This field trip will be great for beginning birders to observe and document what birds are visiting the beds during each season. Birding will be done by foot, but it will be easy walking. Please be prepared for the current weather conditions. Potential hazards include mud, fallen trees, mosquitoes, and poison ivy. Water is always good to have with you, and possibly insect repellent and sunscreen depending on conditions.

** Make sure all valuables in your vehicle are placed out of sight PRIOR to arriving at the parking lot.
