Cranesville Swamp Field Trip - June 18

Hi all!

I obviously have not been clear on the details for this trip. Sorry! We are going Saturday June 18.

We will meet at 9:00am at the Bruceton Mills exit of I-68. There is a parking area on the south side of the interstate and this is where we will meet. We will carpool from there. Try to be there a few minutes early so we can leave at nine. LeJay Graffious will be with us as he was last year.
See you Saturday. Bring a lunch if you desire and definitely something to drink.
