The business meeting and program are both open to the public so all are encouraged to attend.

New Wildlife Observation Blind on Landrus Road. Tiadaghton Audubon in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry has built a new blind on Landrus Road just west of Arnot. The blind is on one of several rather large ponds in forestry lands in that area. A parking area has already been created and a gravel path laid from it to the blind and pond. It is a very pretty location. Here are the GPS coordinates in decimal degrees: N41.66463, W077.14194. Driving instructions below.
From Rte 15, you can visit the project by driving to the village of Arnot (get off at the Blossburg exit and follow signs to Arnot). From Church Street in Arnot, continue west on Arnot Road for another half mile and make a left onto Landrus Road. Landrus Road is an unimproved, forest-service road. The blind site is 0.6 miles from the Arnot Road intersection. There is a small, rough parking area lined with large rocks on the left. The trail is across the road on the right. The new blind is a very short walk at the end of the gravel path. As of now there are no signs.
From Wellsboro: Approximately 15 miles. Take PA Route 6 East out of town, for 2.1 miles and make a slight right turn on to Cherry Flats Rd. Proceed 2.5 miles and turn right on Arnot Road. Follow Arnot Road for 9 miles, making a sharp right hand turn onto Landrus road (turn is located after passing ponds on the left and right and is very shape, approximately 135 degrees. Landrus Road is an unimproved, forest-service road. Follow Landrus Road for 0.6 miles to parking lot on the left. Lot holds approximately 4 cars. The trail to blind is directly across from parking lot.
