5:00 pm: BrewBirding @ Black Rock Sanctuary and Stable 12 Brewing Company
July 24, 2019 –
Located along a bend in the Schuylkill River and previously used as a desilting basin, Black Rock Sanctuary, located at 953 Black Rock Road (Route 113), is 119 acres of wetlands, woodlands, and meadows. Since being reclaimed this area has become an important habitat for waterfowl and migratory birds as well as resident birds. Our walk of 1-2 miles along paved and improved trails will be followed by a trip to Stable 12 Brewing Company (368 Bridge Street, Phoenixville) where we hope to continue birding while enjoying brews in the outdoor beer garden.
Leaders: Patty Werth (484-985-8164, firstname.lastname@example.org) and John Werth (215-859-1148)
