Saturday, August 27, 10:00 AM   Buck Creek State Park

We will be leading a butterfly walk with the Corps of Engineers at the prairie on Overlook Drive on this date. Meet at the prairie parking lot. We will walk around the area looking for butterflies and whatever else we can find. We should see several species of butterflies and maybe a coupe dragonflies. Doug Overacker and Brian Menker will be leaders. The walk should last about 1 1/2 hours.

Recent Bird Sightings

Some migrant shorebirds are starting to move through the area. Two Least Sandpipers were on the beach at Buck Creek State Park on July 10. We also saw a Caspian Tern the week before.

Recent Bird Sightings

There have been some interesting birds in the last couple weeks as we wait for cooler weather and migrating birds. Larry Jeanblanc saw two Laughing Gulls on the beach at Buck Creek State Park on August 3. There has also been a Blue Grosbeak in the beach parking lot in the first two weeks of August. A few shorebirds have shown up on the beach but we're hoping cooler weather will attract a few more.
