Participants should meet at the Train Station in Harpers Ferry.

The trip will involve about 3 miles of walking along some unpaved roads, mostly level terrain.

Birds expected to be seen include wrens, thrushes, sparrows, raptors and waterfowl.

For those that are interested, Deb has extended a gracious invitation to a light lunch of soup at her house following the walk. Please feel free to join her on this winter solstice and enjoy time with fellow birders and friends. Deb's house is located just up the hill in Harpers Ferry.

Participants should wear sturdy footwear, dress for the prevailing weather conditions and bring along drinking water.

Binoculars will be available for anyone who needs them.

The trip will be canceled in the event of bad weather.
