Saturday, July 8th   10:30 AM   Prairie Road Fen

The Corps of Engineers is leading a walk at Prairie Road Fen. Please meet at the Corps of Engineers office at the north end of the dam at C. J. Brown Reservoir. Participants will then carpool to the fen since the parking there is very limited. There should be some interesting wildflowers and maybe some dragonflies to see. Call Doug Oeracker at 324-1871 for more information.

Saturday, July 15th  10:00 AM   C. J. Brown Butterfly Walk

The walk will start at the Prairie View parking lot at C. J. Brown Reservoir. We will walk the prairie area looking for butterflies and whatever else we can find. We are just walking from the parking lot so you can stay as long as you want.

Fall Bird Walks

Our fall bird walks will start on September 2. The schedule will soon be posted on the website.

Recent Bird Sightings

The fall migration has started. We saw a Forster's Tern on the beach at the state park on July 4. With each cold front there is a chance of shorebirds and maybe some terns to show up. There are still many nesting birds around. Grasshopper, Savannah, and Vesper Sparrows were found along Hodge Road on July 5 along with some Horned Larks and a Dickcissel.
