Oct 4-6, Teton Splendor camping trip

Teton Splendor

October 4 -6, 2019

Witness the Tetons in their best fall dress where rampaging large ungulates (elk, bison, moose), release their fall passion with grunts, bugles, and a nasty disposition. Fall migrating birds along with winter residents will add to the fun.

Car pool 3 p.m. from parking lot north of Café Ibis or USU CNR parking lot on Friday, October 4th.

Return Sunday afternoon, October 6th. Several hikes combined with auto tours will be included, and a visit to the Teton Science School Murie Museum.

We will be camping at Gros Ventre campground, so bring your own food & gear.

The cost is $12/night/person for the group campsite plus donating whatever is fair to the driver (unless you’re driving!)

Contact Jack Greene by Friday, September 27th if you plan to participate:

Calling all birders!
We will be doing a bird walk on Saturday, September 14th at the Logan Polishing Ponds. We will begin the birding at 8:30 am at the ponds, so if you know where you are going feel free to meet us there. If you don’t know where you are going, then we will meet at The North Logan City Library parking lot at 8 am. We can carpool or follow from there.
This is a great hotspot for waterfowl and wading birds. Birds expected to see are Eared Grebe, Ruddy Duck, American Avocet, and Marsh Wren. Our Target Bird will be the Black-necked Stilt! Binoculars and a Spotting Scope are good tools at this hotspot, but if you don’t have them there are always people willing to share.
See you there!
