Carden Alvar with Don Docherty
June 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
•The Carden Alvar is a dramatically different experience with prairie smoke, cattle and grassland birds. Weather permitting; we may see Bluebirds, Wrens, Loggerhead Shrikes, Upland Sandpiper, Wilson’s Snipe, a variety of Sparrows, Nighthawks, and listen to lovely Thrush songs as the sun sets. If you stay a little longer you can drive further and listen for Whip-poor-wills. While returning home watch for fireflies.
•Those who wish to carpool can meet at the Northview Library parking lot at 5:00 PM. (Alternately meet Don Docherty at Wylie and McNamee Roads at the Carden Alvar at 6:00 PM.) (Consider driving up earlier and have a picnic at the lift locks at 5:00 PM.)
•Difficulty: Light walking.
•Be prepared with water, sun screen and insect repellent.
