August Tuesday, August 14, 2018 Barb Lucas will give our membership a presentation on “Birds and Bison at Kankakee Sands”.  The 7,000+ acre Kankakee Sands conservation reserve is very important to native plants, animals and birds in Northwest Indiana.  The Nature Conservancy and many other conservation organizations are heavily involved in restoring this area to back to its prairie/wetland status. September Tuesday, September 11, 2018 Member Loyce Fandrei will give our membership a presentation about Gibson Woods the jewel that is located in Hammond.  The property was purchased from the railroad by the Nature Conservancy in 1980 and sold to The Lake County Parks and Recreation Department. The perserve was dedicated in 1981. The Dune and Swale topography is home to many endangered and threatened plants and hosts many bird and animal species too.  Click on the link for more information about Gibson Woods: October Tuesday, October 9, 2018 Possible speaker may be a ranger from the Federal Lakeshore. November Tuesday, November13, 2018 TBA Field Trips July Tuesday, July 17, 2018 We have a planned field trip to the last farm in Munster. We will be meeting at the church at 5:15 PM and will carpool to the farm in Munster which is only about five minutes away from the church. I believe the farm presents with some excellent photographic opportunities and it certainly has significant historical meaning to Munster. The farm dates back to the late 19th century and it is truly a hidden jewel in Munster. (A rain date or possible second date for another photographic shoot at the farm has been arranged for July 24, 2018. We will meet at the church and again travel by carpool to the farm). August Thursday, August 16, 2018 - 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM Our August speaker, Barb Lucas a docent at the Nature Conservancy’s Kankakee Sands Conservation reserve will lead a 2 hour tour of the area, which is home to a recently introduced herd of Bison, native plants, birds and animals.  The trip will take place at 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM and members are requested to meet at the visitor center at Kankakee Sands.  Here is a link for more information about the Kankakee Sands project: /placesweprotect/kankakee-sands.xml October To Be Announced - field trip to the National Lakeshore which will focus on the architectural opportunities of the federal Lakeshore.
