Join Dave Helm for a trip to the always interesting, nearly 8,000 acre Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, February 29. This should be an excellent opportunity to witness Sandhill Crane migration; additionally, waterfowl migration will also be ramping up. The interesting wetlands and bottom land forests of Muscatatuck, as well as the open field habitats, promise a good variety of birds for those on the lookout for them. Join Dave for what is sure to be a good day in the field.
Please note that the field trip will carpool from the Oxbow parking lot and depart at 7:30 AM. Please be there a little early so that the trip can depart on on time. Muscatatuck is about two hours from Lawrenceburg, so leaving as close to 7:30 a.m. as we can is optimal for ensuring as much time in the field at Muscatatuck as possible.
Directions to the Oxbow Parking Lot (From the website of Oxbow, Inc): To reach the upper Oxbow parking area, go south on US Hwy 50 from the I-275 #16 exit. In about 200 yards, turn left (east) at the edge of the Circle K (between the Circle K and Waffle House) and go over the levee to where the road T’s with a fence directly in front of you. Turn right and go to the Oxbow entrance sign. Turn left into the Oxbow. The upper parking area is immediately on the right. You can also use Google Maps and search for “Oxbow Nature Conservancy“.
