In case you have’nt heard, SCVN fieldtrips will start up next week even if the government shutdown is still in place! PLEASE NOTE there is an intermittent problem with the electronic back gate so you may see a different manual gate shut across the entrance. There will be a padlock hanging on the gate, but it is’nt supposed to be locked. SCVN members should just manually open the gate, go thru and then shut the gate. DO NOT LOCK THE PADLOCK!!!!!
