What: Mid-Winter Bird Walk

Time: 8:00 a.m.

Trip Leader: Steve Hartman

Join Steve Hartman at Stauffer's Marsh for a mid-winter bird walk on Sunday, February 15.

The event is free and anyone with an interest is welcome, regardless of their birding skills. 

For planning purposes, preregistration is strongly encouraged.

Participants will meet in the parking area at the north end of the Marsh at 8:00 a.m.

The Preserve is located in Back Creek Valley, one-half mile south of Shanghai, on the east side of Back Creek Valley Road (County Route 7).

The preserve is only 46 acres in size, so the distances to be walked are not great. However, the terrain will include wet meadows and marshlands, as well as dry areas, so waterproof footwear is strongly recommended.
 Please wear gear that will allow you to stand comfortably in one area for small amounts of time as you look for and observe birds. 

The trip will not be canceled unless there is greater than 8 inches of snow on the ground - so come prepared to walk on snowy trails.

Possible species to be sighted include raptors and waterfowl.

Participants should dress appropriately for the prevailing weather and bring water. 

Ticks can be an issue at the preserve year-round, so tick repellent is also recommended if air temperatures are significantly above freezing.

Binoculars will be available for anyone who needs them.

For more information contact trip leader Steve Hartman at 304-263-8785.
