Jeff Canada, one of our fellow Indiana birders, is roasting coffee right here in Indiana. His coffee is Bird-friendy as certified by the Smithsonian. The coffee is quite delicious and the Bird Song Blend benefits ABAS. You can purchase coffee at https://woodwarblercoffee.com/collections/conservation-partner-coffees. Jeff has been roasting coffee since 2017 and it combines his passion for coffee with his passion for birding. Grateful Dead fans might also notice his passion for that group showing up in a few of the names for his coffees. If you have a passion for birds and coffee as well, you might give just give Jeff's coffee a try. We think you'll enjoy it.

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.
