March Birding Field Trip
Saturday, March 29
Kingsbury and Potato Creek
We will meet at the Potato Creek park office parking lot at 8:00 a.m. From there we will car pool to Kingsbury Fish & Wildlife Area to look for waterfowl and songbirds. We will then go back to Potato Creek to check Lake Worster for
waterfowl. This is also a good time of year to see Bald Eagles, so we will be watching for them at both locations.
If you have any questions about our field trips, please call Brian Miller at (574) 291-0804.
Red Barn Sale
St. Patrick's County Park

It’s that time of year again; winter weather has long outworn its charm, and our thoughts turn to… Spring Cleaning? That may not be your first thought, but when you do start clearing out unused items, remember the annual Red Barn Rummage Sale.
Mark your calendar now, and plan to donate and then shop the sale. If you have a question about a possible donation, please contact us.
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.
