This event is intended for Young Birders as well as adults. The Shiawassee
Basin Preserve is a 514-acre natural area located west of downtown
Davisburg. The Preserve protects one of the largest high-quality prairie
fens in Michigan. This is one of the few places where the Poweshiek
Skipperling, an endangered butterfly can be found. Many other species of
butterflies can be seen at the Preserve. Butterfly experts, Doris Applebaum
and Sue Greenlee will help identify butterflies and other insects on the
trail. Plan to hike 1.5 miles. Dress for the weather and bring your
binoculars. Meet at the South Shiawassee Basin Preserve Parking Lot near
the playground at 12000 Davisburg Road, Davisburg, MI.
