October Birding Trips
INDIANA DUNES STATE PARK
We will be traveling to Indiana Dunes St. Pk. for a morning of birding. We will walk a short portion of Trail #2 near the campground while looking for migrating warblers and then check along the road and parking lots as we walk to the Nature Center.
We will meet at the Martin’s shopping center at 4401 Western Ave. Look for my red truck near the big Martin’s sign. It's about a one-hour drive to the park. A vehicle entry fee will be required at the park.
POTATO CREEK STATE PARK
Please join us for a 2-hour walk through the woodland and along Worster Lake as we look for late migrating songbirds. Maybe we will see a Great Egret or one of the Bald Eagles on the lake. We will meet at the Nature Center at 9:00.
If you have any question about our field trips, please contact Brian Miller at 574-291-0804 or e-mail email@example.com.

A Shade Grown Coffee taste treat is in store for us. Our Conservation Committee will present a program on shade-grown coffee and how it benefits wildlife. Several varieties will be available for tasting. The presenters will explain the differences between shade-grown, organic, and fair trade coffee, and discuss designations like Bird Friendly and Rainforest Alliance Network. They will also provided a handout of local merchants selling shade-grown coffee with price comparisons.
Come and taste the goodness of the brew. The public is cordially invited.
