Saturday/Sunday, May 5th and 6th
FISH SPRINGS NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE
Work Party and Birding
Leader: Tom Neuman

This is a great opportunity to visit the refuge and to help out.
Saturday afternoon will be spent working on a project involving the fish of Fish Springs, and the rest of the time will be spent birding. The birding should be great this time of year. (More than 110 species of birds have been seen on the refuge in one day during May.)

Bring a dish to share for Saturday's potluck dinner. Camping is possible, and the bunkhouse or trailer will be available for the overnight.

Meet at 8am in the southeast corner of the Shopko parking lot on 13th East near I-80. Call Tom (274-9595) for more information, and to let him know you'll be there.
