Saturday, June 10, STILLWATER SCHOOL NATURE TRAIL/LOCK 4 STATE CANAL PARK (Saratoga & Rensselaer Counties; morning

Coordinator: Naomi Lloyd 518-596-5964

The Stillwater School Nature Trail has an expansive open marsh on the north side, with Green Heron, Virginia Rail and Sora often present. Least Bittern is also possible. The wetland continues along the south side but is not as open. The wide trail continues to the Hudson where it turns left and follows the river through a deciduous forest. We will then drive south about 1.7 miles to Lock 4 State Canal Park to check rocky shoals on the Hoosic River for shorebirds, and walk the woodlands around the Lock.

Meet at 7:30 a.m. at the trail entrance. Turn off Rt 4 in Stillwater at the road to the school complex, and drive to the end. The trail starts at a chain link gate.
