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.

Did you know that this Saturday, October 6, is the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Global Big Day?

No matter where you live, it's a great time to get outside, find birds, and record them in eBird. Let’s represent Indiana the best that we can by getting those checklists submitted!
