Meet at Wolf Lake Fish Hatchery outside the Visitors’ Center. The hatchery is six miles west of US- 131 on the southwest corner of M-43 and Fish Hatchery Drive. Turn south onto Fish Hatchery Drive and enter the parking lot by the second driveway on the right.

This will be a mini version of The Big Sit. The object will be to count as many species as we see or hear from within a 17-foot circle that is centered on the observation deck on the south side of the main pond at the Hatchery. It is fun to watch the Hatchery wildlife come awake in the morning. You might want to bring binoculars, a field guide, and spotting scope if you have one. One scope will be available for sharing. There is a bench on the deck, although it may be wet from condensation or rain. Dress for the weather.
