Black’s Creek Bird Reserve

This is a relatively new part of the Blacks Creek Reservoir property.  It had been neglected for years but with $35,000 in grants and hundreds of hours of volunteer time, it was cleaned up and re-dedicated on Earth Day 2013.  It is now protected from further neglect.  The great part is that you can go on birdwatching trails by foot, or on horseback.
