Birds and Butterflies (and Bison!) at Kankakee Sands
We will be traveling down to Newton County for this extended field trip, where we will meet at the Nature Conservancy's Kankakee Sands office on US-41 (about 7 miles south of Lake Village, IN). We will bird the grassland restoration areas from 8-11am (and will look for the bison as well!). After a picnic lunch, we will take advantage of the mid-day sun to walk trails through the prairie looking for butterflies like the Regal Fritillary, a Kankakee Sands specialty. Free and open to the public, but please RSVP to email@example.com.
