A field trip on Saturday, May 4 led by Brad Merritt and Sharyn Magee. Carpool or caravan will depart Princeton Shopping Center at 7:00 am arriving at Garret by 9 AM to meet those driving up themselves. Trip will end around 2:00 pm for those who wish to stay into the afternoon.
Garret Mountain Reservation, a Passaic County Park, located just south of Paterson, NJ, can be an excellent spot in the spring for the songbird migration. We may also visit Rifle Camp Park, which is adjacent to Garret Mountain. Bring a lunch.
Directions: From I-80 exit 56A (Squirrelwood Road). Turn right on Rifle Camp Road. At Mountain Ave, turn left (army tank and reservoir on left) and go 0.3 miles to the entrance to Garret Mountain Reservation. Go right up hill to a large parking area. From Somerville, roughly 45 miles.
