Gulls and Waterfowl
December 7, 2016   8:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Wednesday)

Gulls and waterfowl always present a challenge.  We will see plenty of both,
and learn ways to conquer the challenge.  Stops: Robert Long Nature Park, and Walled Lake. 
Meet in the parking lot of Robert Long on 14  Mile Rd., just west of the M-5 (Haggerty) Connector.

Things to do:

  • Learn more about birds this spring and summer through volunteer work such as bird banding, nest-box monitoring, and conducting bird surveys.

  • Check out the new Polk Penguin Conservation Center at the Detroit Zoo.  It is home to 70 penguins.
