NTOS Field Trip – September 14th

Loading Events

September 14th – Shelby Bottoms (Phase 3 and Cornelia Fort)

As fall migration heats up, we’ll check out one of the best spots in Nashville for weary migrants to rest and refuel.  We’ll meet at the Forrest Green Trailhead, otherwise known as the entrance to Phase 3.  We will bird the paved path through the successional woodlands that run along the Cumberland River down to the Pedestrian bridge and back (about 2 miles).  Once back at the parking lot, we’ll make the short drive over to Cornelia Fort Airpark and bird the grassy meadows and ponds of the area.  Depending on the mowing schedule, the grass at Cornelia Fort can be tall, so bug spray and boots are recommended for that portion of the walk (I usually change shoes when arriving at Cornelia Fort).  We’ll get started at 6:30am to take advantage of the cooler morning temps and should finish up by mid-morning.  (Contact information: ms722@bellsouth.net).
