Spend a day traversing the many habitats of Cass County. Enjoy the camaraderie of fellow MRVAC members as we attempt to identify at least 100 species in a single day. Target species include Eastern Whip-poo-will, Bobolink, Winter Wren, Meadowlarks, Red-headed woodpecker, and nearly 20 Warbler species. This trip is led by Dale Yerger, Josh Sweet, Jill Sweet, and Jared Little. The event takes place rain or shine.

Registration is limited to 12 MRVAC members so that we can keep a reasonable caravan size. All ages and experience levels are welcome. Participant cost includes a $25 trip fee and a lodging fee of $50 per night spent at Deep Portage. The trip fee includes breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Dinner is on your own, but microwaves and refrigerators are available for use and there are several restaurants within driving distance. Participants can choose to spend 0-2 nights at Deep Portage (Friday evening through Sunday morning).

Email Josh Sweet to register or for more information at jhsweet0201@gmail.com. The fee is $25 per person and an additional $50 per night for lodging if required.
