UPCOMING WALKS & MEETINGS
Saturday March 4, 2017 – Meet at 8 am
Morton Wildlife Refuge
We will meet at the Morton Wildlife Refuge parking lot at 8 am, and walk approximately 2 miles on this hike. Not only do the birds eat right out of your hand the minute you get out of your car, but there are frequently pockets of over-wintering birds along the way. Dress warmly and appropriately. Bird seed will be provided. Contact Eileen Schwinn, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, and at 516-662-7751 the day of the trip.
