Late summer birding can remain active in the deep forests of Indiana’s first state park and this amazing Indiana Birding Trail site, McCormick’s Creek State Park. Join local birder and state park naturalist, Wyatt Williams, for an early morning of birding near Bloomington.
Registered participants will meet at the McCormick’s Creek State Park Nature Center. Park entrance fees apply. Terrain will be easy to moderate. Beginners and advanced birders welcome. We’ll be out for 2-3 hours. The trip begins at 7:00 AM Eastern Time to take advantage of early morning bird activity before the heat and park visitors begin to arrive. Participants must pre-register, as trips fill up fast. The trip is free for IAS members and $10 for non-IAS members. Indiana State Parks have entrance fees, but annual passes are available for those that visit frequently.
The field trip will be led by Wyatt Williams. Registration is required below, as most IAS trips fill fast. For more information on the park or birding conditions, contact Wyatt
