Field Trip:  Arcadia Grasslands on Saturday Sept. 14. at 8:00 AM.  Meet at the kiosk overlooking the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy grasslands on Keillor Rd. about 3/4 mile north of Glovers Lake Rd.  (Glovers Lake Rd. from US-31 go west to the intersection of Keillor and go right or north).   We will bird the grasslands paying particular attention to the sparrows and their challenging identification.  Time permitting we will then head over to the Arcadia Marsh and the new dike that crosses the marsh viewing the restoration efforts there and seeing a new group of sparrows and other fall migrants.  We will be walking through some tall grass at the grassland but the walking on the dike is open but may be muddy if it ever rains.  For any questions call Brian Allen at 510-9380.
