Odonata Sanctuary is the former estate of Joseph W. Taylor who was Treasurer of Bausch & Lomb and a world-class bird watcher. A few years ago, the Melcher family purchaseD the property from the children of Joseph Taylor to both preserve and enhance the beauty and provide a home for their family of six.
We will explore the grounds, which includes meadows and a large pond (Taylor Pond). For the more adventurous there are also acres of well-trailed wooded property. Odonata is now the home of a Bluebird restoration area and is a member of United Plant Savers.
Leaders: Bill Bross and/or Steve Melcher.
