September 2021 Monthly Meeting @ Wolf Lake State Fish Hatchery
Sep 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Planning programs for the 2021-2022 program year has been a challenge as Covid protocols remained fluid and our host, The People’s Church, worked through their meeting policies well into August. Therefore, we thought we’d try something a little different for this year’s September kick-off meeting. We hope you’ll join us at the Wolf Lake Fish Hatchery on Monday, September 27, at 6:00 PM for an outdoor social gathering (snacks only, no coffee/tea/water) and meeting, followed by a walk at the hatchery in search of fall migrants. We haven’t met in person since February of 2020, and we’ve taken a break from most organized field trips since then. This will provide both an opportunity to gather in person AND to see some birds. There will be an opportunity for members to share their best bird sightings during the past 18 months, so bring those stories with you. Also, there is limited seating outdoors at the hatchery, so consider bringing a chair if standing is not an option for you. Note: the earlier meeting time is so that we can meet and have time to see birds before sunset. As always, please be mindful of recommended Covid precautions when attending any ASK event. Rain Date: Tuesday, September 28.

Wolf Lake Fish Hatchery is located at 34270 CR 652, Mattawan. From Kalamazoo, take M-43 west to Fish Hatchery Road (County Road 652). Turn left (south) on CR 652 and look for the parking lot (second drive) on the right (west).

Kal-Haven Trail Weekly Bird Walks @ Kal-Haven Trail
Sep 28 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

We’ll be continuing the years’ long tradition of Tuesday morning trail walks on the Kal-Haven Trail in September and October at 9:00 AM, starting at the Trailhead on North 10th Street between G and H Avenues. A few of us walk 2.5 miles to the usually very birdy marsh at 8th Street and then back for a total of 5 miles, but anyone can cut that short and turn around at any time. There will not be a “leader” although someone will be keeping a species list.

We meet at the caboose at the trailhead on 10th Street. Walks will start on Tuesday, September 7. During the walks, social distancing will be maintained. No spotting or shuttling of cars will be available unless you arrange your own.

If you would like to be in an email group to be notified of the latest status of the walks or to discuss weather conditions, please send an email to Joyce Leppard at joyceannleppard@gmail.com.

We hope to see you on the trail.
