CILTI Events on the ABAS Calendar

We are pleased to begin including the Central Indiana Land Trust (CILTI) events on our calendar. These are volunteer days and hikes in the central Indiana region. CILTI has long been a partner of ABAS in helping us fulfill our stewardship mission for the birds. We have contributed well over $100,000 to various land conservation projects. There are four volunteer days coming up and they'd love some help clearing invasive species. These are two hours in length so they're easy to do. We also have two hikes listed. Mossy Point in Parke County is a beautiful nature preserve in the Sugar Creek valley. If you haven't been there, this is a place not to miss. And being the Friday after Thanksgiving, it's a perfect way to walk off some of that Thanksgiving turkey! The other hike will concentrate on trees at Meltzer's Woods near Shelbyville. It's another beautiful nature preserve.

This Short-eared Owl seems to be wondering who's trick-or-treating tonight? 🙂 Be safe and have fun while celebrating #Owloween this evening!

Thank you to Kevin Wyckoff for allowing us to use this hilarious and wonderful photo of one inquisitive owl! #AmosButlerAudubon

Happy #Owloween!

Educational birds like this Eastern Screech-Owl from the Eagle Creek Ornithology Center, are a great way to help people learn more about birds and conservation. If you haven't been to Eagle Creek Park - Indy Parks and Recreation to see their live birds of prey, try stopping by on a Sunday afternoon or check their website for the event schedule.

Thank you to Indianapolis birder, Aaron Cook for sharing his photo with us! #AmosButlerAudubonSociety
