Field Trip - Saturday, September 12th

We will meet at Hutton Lake National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday morning (Sept. 12th). Although the lakes have been shrinking through the summer, there are still some ducks and shorebirds being reported via eBird.

Please pre-register by emailing us at laramie.audubon@gmail.com and bring/wear your mask as well as the usual water, sun protection, snacks, and birding supplies. New policy: LAS will only share spotting scopes that are equipped with camera viewers; we are currently uncertain whether we will have any such scopes at this field trip.

Directions to Hutton Lake National Wildlife Refuge: If coming from Laramie, head south on 3rd Street/ US-287, turn right onto County Road 22 (toward the cement plant), then turn left onto Sand Creek Road (parallel to railroad tracks - many people have missed this turn and mistakenly entered the cement plant parking lot). Stay on Sand Creek Road for about 8 miles, then turn right at the National Wildlife Refuge sign. Meet at the parking area just inside the fence, adjacent to the Refuge's information board.
