Our November Meeting
Sunday, November 9
Ferrettie/Baugo Creek County Park
A presentation will be made by Laura Fuderer, Conservation Chair of the Audubon society, titled Audubon Climate Report: The Future for North American Birds. This September the National Audubon Society released a report projecting that over half of the wild bird species in the U.S. and Canada may be at risk unless we take action now. Come and see a slide show about some of the birds that may be affected and what we can do to save them. The entrance to Ferrettie/Baugo park is located on County Line Road (Ash Rd) just north of US 933 in Osceola, Indiana. (Directions)
The public is cordially invited.
November Birding Trips
Saturday, November 1
Wakarusa Waste Water Treatment Pond
We will meet at the Wakarusa Waste Water Treatment Facility at 8:30 a.m. For those of you who are beginning birdwatchers, you might ask, “Why would anyone want to visit a waste water treatment pond?” The answer is that they can be bird magnets. Many of us have
added new birds to our life lists, while birding at waste water ponds across the US.A. We will enter the WWTF via a lane on CR40, which is Pierce Rd. in St. Joseph County. The entrance lane is about 1/4 mile east of Elkhart CR1. This location is about 3/4 mile west of the main
square in Wakarusa.
If you have any questions about our field trips, please email Brian Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
