April Field Trip
Saturday, April 15
Ambler Flatwoods Nature Preserve
If you attended our February membership meeting, you may recall hearing Shirley Heinze Land Trust’s Executive Director Kris Krouse speak about the Ambler Flatwoods Nature Preserve. On April 15th, we will be traveling there to explore the birds, botany, and ecology of this rare 390-acre boreal flatwoods forest just east of Michigan City.
Participants should meet at the main Ambler Flatwoods parking lot at 8:00 a.m. EDT (7:00 a.m. CDT) on County Road 600 West (Meer Road). The main parking area is on the left (west side of the road). From there, we’ll cross the road onto the main trailhead. The terrain is flat, but it will almost certainly be muddy in parts, so waterproof footwear is strongly recommended. For further directions or questions, please contact Steve Sass at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (574) 340-9239.

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, philanthropy and fellowship with others having similar goals.
