The Marian University Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab is a wonderful place to bird watch, with over 165 different species sighted since 2000. The property contains a landscape designed by famous landscape architect Jens Jensen in 1911. The result of that design is a high quality natural area with lots of wetland, grassland, and lowland forest habitat. It’s a historical and ecological gem in the middle of the city!

We will meet near the entrance to Allison Mansion at 8 a.m. every Wednesday during September, October, and November (excluding Thanksgiving week). Parking is no trouble if you arrive just before 8. Bring binoculars and shoes that you don’t mind getting wet if it has rained recently. No reservation is required. The walk is cancelled if it is raining. Contact David Benson, dbenson@marian.edu, with questions.
