Sage Grouse Field Trip Sat., Apr. 5, 5:10 a.m., Eppson Senior Center parking lot

Please join Laramie Audubon Society to visit a Sage Grouse lek north of Laramie.  Watch the Sage Grouse strut their stuff in their annual mating display.
Saturday, April 5, 2014
Meet at 5:10am to caravan, carpool
Eppson Senior Center parking lot (northwest corner of 3rd St and Curtis St)

We will leave the parking lot at 5:20 am sharp to be at the lek before sunrise.  Be sure to gas up ahead of time.  Call 307-760-9518 if you plan to attend or if you have questions.
It takes about 45 minutes to get to the lek and we will be traveling on rutted dirt roads so a 4WD and/or high clearance vehicle is a must.  If you do not have one and wish to attend, you may ride with someone who has the appropriate vehicle.
Bring very warm clothes and gloves, snacks and water, hot beverage optional. It will most likely be very windy and cold.  Don't forget your binoculars and spotting scope if you have one.
We will be back in Laramie by 8:00am.  So you'll have the rest of the day to do what you want.
