Sunday, May 15, BOZENKILL PRESERVE (Albany County; morning) Coordinators: Tom and Colleen Williams firstname.lastname@example.org
Bozenkill Preserve is a MHLC property that features out-and-back trails which run alongside the creek. Flowing from the Helderberg Escarpment, the Bozen Kill is little known beyond Altamont and the Hilltowns. The stream originates from wetlands in Schenectady County and Duane Lake near Delanson and flows through the largely inaccessible Bozen Kill ravine before passing Altamont, eventually entering the Watervliet Reservoir in Guilderland. The Bozen Kill ravine is largely unexplored by birders. Expect typical closed-canopy, woodland species, but there are open fields near the trailhead with edge habitat, and the creek should add some species as well.
Due to limited parking this trip will be capped at twelve persons, please RSVP the coordinator in advance.
Meet at 7:30 a.m. at the preserve parking lot on Westfall Rd. in Altamont.
