BBC field trip

The Brooklyn Bird Club is doing another survey this weekend. Here is the information from their website:

Saturday, October 20th, Ridgewood Reservoir bird and nature survey

Leaders: Heidi Steiner and Steve Nanz

Registration period: two weeks before each trip date, beginning with the first Tuesday, ending on the last Thursday in second week.

Registrar: Heidi Steiner-Nanz 718- 369-2116 before 8 PM or email

Note: This trip will focus and document birds for this future Brooklyn/Queens park, formerly a reservoir that supplied Brooklyn's water in the late 19th century. The greenspace adjoining Highland Park has been classified as a "destination park" under Mayor Bloomberg's PLANYC plan, to undergo a complete restoration, though with contentious issues.
