The Pink-footed Goose was last seen with Canada Geese on the west side of Knollcroft Rd.

View from Knollcroft or Valley Roads only. Do not block the roads. Do not walk onto the golf course. Security has been friendly in the past. Please, let us keep it that way.

Somerset County is blazing hot right now with three county firsts in December:

  1. Townsend’s Warbler at Duke Farms, Dec. 12-13.
  2. The continuing Rock Wren in Franklin Township, Dec. 25-current.
