BIRDING AT SMITH LAKE
September 6, 2022 @ 8:00 AM - 11:00 AMfree
JOIN FAS field trip organizer, Darcy Thomas organizer on Tuesday September 6, from 8-11 AM. for a morning of birdwatching. The group will walk a portion of the paved Great Northern Historical Trail along Smith Lake
before driving around the lake stopping at the boat launch and other pullouts along the way. Smith Lake is a complex of large, shallow wetlands and marsh, surrounded by stands of willow and other shrubs as well as conifers. Among other birds we will be looking for mixed flocks of migrants such as warblers, vireos, flycatchers, tanagers, sparrows, and thrushes that feast on the chokecherries. Vault toilet available at the Fishing access site. Bring binoculars, water and a spotting scope if you have one. To register contact Darcy at 406-407-8263 or email@example.com. Space is limited.
