Field Trips

Saturday, May 12th, 6am -- 1pm
Leader: Deedee O'Brien

The habitat and birds of this refuge always make a spring trip wortwhile. We plan to stop at the new visitor/education center on the way home, but will head straight back to Shopko from there.

Meet in the southeast corner of the Shopko Parking lot in Sugarhouse in time to arrange carpools and leave by 6:00AM.

Call Deedee at 272-8060 if you plan to attend.
