Goose Pond Shorebirds Field Trip
September 1, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm EDTFree – $15
Join IAS for a glimpse of the fall shorebird migration during this special field trip to Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area on Saturday, September 1. By this date in recent years, an abundance of shorebirds and early migrating waterfowl can be seen in the various units of Goose Pond. Participants will meet IAS Board Member and birder, Mark Welter, for a morning tour of the best units and a chance to see as many shorebirds and other specialty birds as possible. Though binoculars work well, spotting scopes are also recommended. Prepare for a variety of weather conditions and up to a mile of walking through potentially wet grass.
The trip begins at 8:00 AM at the Goose Pond Visitor Center at 13540 W County RD 400 S, Linton, IN. Participants must pre-register, as trips fill up fast. The trip is free for IAS members and $15 for non-IAS members. For questions, email Mark Welter here. .
