EARTH DAY AT THE CRESTON FISH HATCHERY
April 20, 2022 @ 8:00 AM - 11:00 AMFree
Please join FAS field trip leader Darcy Thomas on Wednesday, April 20, from 8am-11am.to hike the trails and view the pond from a birding blind for a variety of habitats that are attractive to several species. While ducks are more typical on the ponds, the grounds offer a bubbling creek, woodland edges and plenty of shrubs and trees. This is an excellent
place to find migrant songbirds, Great Blue Herons, Bald Eagles, Belted Kingfisher and American Dipper.
We will also look for early blooms. Dress warmly and bring binoculars and a spotting scope if you have
one. Walking of up to two miles on easy trails is possible. If desired and the weather permits, bring a
picnic lunch to enjoy at the covered pavilion at the end of the field trip. Bathrooms available. Participants
limited to 10. Contact Darcy to register at 406-407-8263 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
