The rescheduled White Street Landfill field trip is “ON” for this Saturday, Jan. 20th. Although we had a lot of snow, we should expect sunny skies the rest of the week, continuing through Saturday with mild temperatures of about 50 degrees F forecasted. This is a joint activity with Piedmont Bird Club and T. Gilbert Pearson Audubon Society.
