Saturday, September 24, 7:30 AM Estel Wenrick Wetlands
We shall meet at the usual place at Croft and Eastman Roads and carpool to the wetlands. Please contact Doug Overacker at 324-1871 to make other arrangements. There is a nice trail through the woods and also another trail through the prairie. We will walk both trails. On the woodland trail we should see a few warblers. On the prairie trail we might see some sparrows. The walking is level and should be fairly dry.
Saturday, October 1, 7:30 AM Buck Creek State Park
We return to this park for this walk. It is a great place to look for warblers, shorebirds and other migrants at this time of year. We should have a good list for the day. We shall meet at the usual location at the corner of Croft and ?Eastman Roads. Call Doug Overacker at 324-1871 for more information.
