Birding Field Trips
From April 26 through May 12, we will do Tuesday and Thursday bird walks at the Myrick Marsh and Hixon Forest at 6:30 AM. The Tuesday walks will be at the Myrick Marsh (meet at base of trail by Myrick Park Center parking lot) and the Thursday walks will be held in the Hixon Forest (meet at parking lot at end of Milson Court). These walks will end around 8:00 am and are open to all and free. On Saturday, May 7th, there will be two bird walks at Myrick Marsh as part of the World Migratory Bird Day event. The start times will be 6:30 AM and 9:00 AM. Both are free and open to the public. The second will be more family focused but kids of all ages are welcome for both. On Saturday, May 14th, we will have a Wyalusing State Park field trip. We meet at 6:00 AM on the entrance road to the park between the highway and the gate house. Look for the cars. This trip is very special since there are many species found at the park that are tought to find elsewhere in Wisconsin. There will also be bird hikes on May 7th in Ferryville that are hosted by the Mississippi Valley Conservancy (see their website for information) and as part of the Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge's World Migratory Bird Day event on May 14th. Check the CRAS calendar for a flyer for that event (preregistration required for many activities).
