Leader: Sherman Suter
Join us for one of our dazzling nature gems in Calvert County. The American Chestnut Land Trust has 22 miles of natural trails, including the recently established Holly Hill Trail. Explore this spectacular property in search of warblers and other neotropical songbirds. Bird migration will be strong, as well as the singing of the local breeding birds establishing nesting territories. Trails are well-maintained but rough in spots, so wear appropriate footwear.
DIRECTIONS: From Route 4 in Prince Frederick, turn east onto Dares Beach Road/MD 402. Continue 2.4 miles to right turn at Double Oak Road. Continue 1.5 miles to a signed gate and a dirt road on the left. Take the dirt road to the left and continue to the parking lot between office and barn. Meet at the parking lot just beyond the Land Trust Office. RSVP to Sherman at 410-586-1073 or ShermanSuter@gmail.com.
Note the early starting time of 7:30 a.m.
