October Birding Trip
Saturday, October 11
Galien River County Park
Please join us for a morning of birding at this new park near New Buffalo in Berrien County for
some unique birding. We will start along the edges of the parking lot and then follow the woodland trail to the canopy walk. Here you will be 60 feet above the marsh among the tree tops. We will then descend to the marsh boardwalk and follow it to the Galien River. Depending on the timing and weather conditions, we may stop for a short visit at the New Buffalo Beach, before we drive to Three Oaks Water Treatment Ponds.
We will meet near Key Bank, at the corner of Summit and Western Ave in the Belleville shopping area parking lot at 8:00 a.m. for carpooling. Summit Drive is the first stoplight east of Mayflower Road.
For more information, please contact Brian at 574-291-0804 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
The mission of the South Bend-Elkhart Audubon Society is to promote stewardship of our natural resources with a special emphasis on birds. We achieve this goal through education, conservation, activism, philanthropy and fellowship with others having similar goals.
