Meet at A&W in the Fortune Shopping Center
From Margaret Graham
I am planning a field trip to Lac du Bois on Sunday, June 3. One of my sources was up to Lac du Bois grasslands Sunday and reported that it was stunning. Many of the usual suspects were flowering including, but not limited to: Arrowleaf balsamroot, upland larkspur, Thompson’s paintbrush, and death camas. He said it is beautiful up there at the moment, but it was overwhelmingly mosquito territory so you might want to wear long sleeve shirts and pants and take your mosquito repellent. I hope there will still be some birds on the ponds and on Lac du Bois itself.
We will meet at the A&W in the Fortune Shopping Center at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday June 3 for car-pooling. If you need a ride to the North Shore, let me know and I will try to arrange a ride for you.
For all field trips, dress for the weather, bring water and snacks or a lunch, don’t forget your binoculars and camera.
There is no need to register in advance. Everyone will be asked to sign an attendance form. Non-club members will also be asked to sign a day trip waiver form and pay $1.
When carpooling, at trip-end, please offer the driver compensation for gas and wear-and tear on the vehicle. Consider offering what you feel would be fair if you had been driving that vehicle and would be receiving the compensation.
