Postponed - 12th Ducks & Donuts

Due to high water level this event has been postponed by one week and will now happen on Saturday, Mar 23rd, from 8-11 at the Stillwater Marsh Overlook.

Come join us at our 12th installation of Ducks & Donuts on Saturday, Mar 16th, 2019 at the Stillwater Marsh Overlook, off State Road 46, east of Bloomington. We will serve coffee and donuts and hopefully there will be plenty of waterfowl and other birds to look at. We will start at 8am and finish at 11am.

This event also served as the March outing of our monthly series of bird walks, aimed at being casual outings open to birders of all skill levels (beginners to advanced). During the year we will visit many of the best birding areas in our 8 county region, hosted by a Friend of SAS. All are welcome! Walks will be held on the 3rd Saturday of each month, starting at 8am in the morning. They last about 2 hours and comfortable footwear is recommended (we recommend mud boots or similar water tight footwear if it has rained recently). If you need directions or have any questions please contact us at sas@sassafrasaudubon.org.
