Field Trip Leader: Brian Morse
Our club has been invited by the Edith & Theodore Roosevelt Pine Knot Foundation for a morning of birding. Pine Knot, the rustic retreat of our 26th President Theodore, and First Lady Edith, Roosevelt, and their family during his presidency, is nestled deep in the quiet woods of southern Albemarle County, Virginia woods, 13 miles south of Charlottesville off S.R. 20. Edith purchased Pine Knot in 1905 as a place for “rest and repairs” with a small cottage described as “probably quite the most unpretentious habitation ever owned by a president of the United States” with no electricity, heating, plumbing, insulation, or interior finish.
Brian Morse, Virginia Wildlife Biologist, has volunteered to lead this adventure. In the past, our club has found migrating warblers, scarlet tanagers, and red-headed woodpeckers. To register for this event and get additional information, please email Paula [email protected]
Covid safety guidelines will be practiced.
