[TN-Bird] NTOS field trip 8/18 - Peeler Park

This Saturday, 8/18, NTOS will offer a field trip to Peeler Park.  Peeler is 
Metropolitan Nashville's newest park which just opened in June.  It's located 
in Madison, just north of Nashville at the east end of Neelys Bend Rd., which 
runs off of Gallatin Pk.  The park has 1.5 miles of level, paved trails, plus 
some dirt side trails and a horse path.  Another trail and boardwalk will be 
added this fall.  It's mostly bottom land running along the Cumberland River 
with large open fields, tree lines, and some woods.  It seemed very promising 
as 
a new birding destination for the Nashville area when Phillip Casteel and I 
birded there in June.  We'll meet at the Adventure Science Museum lower parking 
lot and leave there at 7:00 A.M.  If you'd rather meet us at the park, be at 
the Peeler Park parking lot at 7:20.  This trip will last just a few hours.  
If you have any questions, please contact me offline.
