Songbird walk planned




The Pine Mountain Trail Club and the Clinch Ranger District will host a birding walk along a section of the Pine Mountain Trail on Saturday, June 14. Join members of the Pine Mountain Trail Club and Forest Service staff on this moderately strenuous four-mile round-trip walk along a section of the Pine Mountain Trail to the old Meade homeplace at the head of Stacy Branch. Being the height of birding season, plenty of migratory songbirds can be heard.

Interested birders should meet and the trailhead at the top of Pound/Jenkins Mountain on Route 23 at 9:00 a.m. The trailhead is adjacent to the Sunoco Gas/Stateline Market on Route 23 South. Bring binoculars, bird books, sunscreen and hat, lunch, and water; wear sturdy shoes or boots. If there is rain, the walk will be canceled.

For more information, please contact the Clinch Ranger District Office at (276) 328-2931.
