The next scheduled event for our Important Bird Area (IBA) is a survey/clean-up at Gosnold’s Hope Park on 19 May beginning at 8 am. This will be in conjunction with some volunteers through the Hampton Clean City Commission (HCCC). Details are as follows: Arrive at 8 am and conduct a bird survey of the area until around 10:00. From 10:00 until around noon, perform litter removal. Wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions (hat, sunscreen) and bring water/snacks as desired. Trash bags and grabbers will be provided, but ensure you bring work gloves for handling the trash. Directions to the park: From Williamsburg, take I-64 East and exit onto Mercury Blvd toward the Coliseum. Take the King St exit and turn left toward Langley AFB. Turn right onto Little Back River Rd and continue to Gosnold’s Hope Park which will be on your left. Go through the main entrance and continue to the boat launch on the right side of the road where we’ll assemble before starting. If you want to carpool meet at 7 am at Colony Square Shopping Center on Jamestown Road.
