February 2018

DATE TBD - DAY TBD - Fort Drum Marsh Conservation Area - Guide: George Glenn - We will meet out at
the parking area near the first gate at Fort Drum at 7 AM. It is important that everyone try to
get there on time because we will enter through a gate that we will have to lock after driving
through. To get to the entrance to Fort Drum, go west on Rt. 60 as if you are heading to
Yeehaw Junction. The entrance is on the South side of the road, and is roughly 15 miles from
the I-95 interchange and right before you get to the "bend" in the Rt. 60 road. You do NOT go
all the way to Yeehaw Junction. Once you make the turn into Fort Drum access road, you will
travel around 1/2 mile to the gate. It's a single road so you don't have to worry about getting
lost. Everyone will be provided the combination to the gate lock so that if you decide you want
to quit the hike early, you will be able to leave when you want. Contact the field trip leader,
George Glenn, at 850-294-4586 if you need further directions, especially on the morning of the
field trip. Online signup coming soon.
