Field Trip: Cloudmarch Salt Marsh, Newcastle

June 15 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am

Join us for a unique opportunity to visit a remarkable salt marsh that is inaccessible to the public! We will primarily focus on observing Saltmarsh and Nelson’s Sparrows, both of which regularly breed on this marsh. However, due to the variety of habitats that we will cover, we expect to find a wide assortment of songbirds, woodpeckers, raptors, and many others.

Due to the sensitive nature of this ecosystem and its species, this field trip will be capped to 10 participants divided into two groups of 5. The first group will start at 7 am and the second group will start at 9 am. Come prepared to walk approximately 1 mile on wet, swampy ground and to ascend/descend a steep unpaved trail to access the marsh.

To sign up, please send an email to Mael Glon indicating your preferred time slot and how many people will be in your party. We will share the address and parking instructions with registrants. For more information, please call trip leader Jeff Cherry, at (914) 489-7870. Please note that if the weather is unfavorable on Saturday, June 15, we will move this field trip to Sunday, June 16.
