On Thursday 14 June 2012 Harold Howell will lead a field trip to a private 
wildlife refuge in Jefferson County near Mossy Creek Wildlife Viewing Area. 
Trip details as follows: 

Thursday, June 14, 2012, meet at 9:00 AM in the parking area for 
Mossy Creek Wildlife Viewing Area, Jefferson City, TN 
Leader: Harold Howell (865-828-6302)

estate has been developed and landscaped for attracting birds. Numerous

beautifully landscaped with large numbers of flowers and flowering trees.

nesting on the property. Moderate walking will be required. We should be 
finished by noon. Please call Harold Howell at 865-828-6302 if you have 

Directions to Mossy Creek:

left turn you will cross a bridge over railroad tracks, then take the next 
street to the right. This street will tee into another street, where you 
will turn right. Go about three city blocks and turn left at the next 
street (there is an older white farmhouse on the corner). This street tees 
into another street in about two city blocks, and you will be looking at 
Mossy Creek. Turn left and go a short distance to the parking lot on the
