Saturday, September 7, 2019, 8:30am-11:30am. Drayton Plains Leader: Kathleen Dougherty ( <kad8186...> ) This event is intended for Young Birders as well as adults. The Drayton Plains Nature Center is a 138-acre natural area in Waterford along the Clinton River. The site is a former fish hatchery. Several ponds were constructed for the hatchery along the river. The property has an impressive bird checklist with 176 species recorded. Director of Bird Studies, Terri Chapdelaine will assist with the tour. Dress for the weather and bring your binoculars. Plan to hike about 2 miles. Meet at the Nature Center Parking Lot at 2125 Denby Road in Waterford, MI.
Sunday, September 8, 2019, 8:00am-12:00pm. Kensington Metropark Leader: Dan Gertiser ( <dangertiser...> ) On our visit to Kensington we will look for fall migrants on the trails around the nature center. Our emphasis will be on migrating passerines. We will also search for early migrating waterfowl. Meet at the Nature Center where there are modern bathroom facilities. Insects should not be a problem. A Metropark pass is required.
