All:  I am cancelling this evening’s SLAS Woodcock and Owl walk at Young CA.  As I am sure most are aware, up to 3 inches of snow is forecasted by 6 this evening.  I live only a few miles away and it has been snowing here already for the last hour.  So, with regret, let’s play it safe and try again next year.

Subject: SLAS Woodcock & Owl Walk for Beginners - Young CA - March 26




Sorry to be getting this out a little late.  However, Saturday, March 26, 2011, I will lead a fieldtrip sponsored by the St. Louis Audubon Society to Hilda Young CA (Jefferson County). 


WHO CAN COME:  Members or Non-Members, however this fieldtrip is targeted for beginners.


CARPOOLING/ MEET:  Meet at 5:30 PM for caravan or carpool in the commuter lot in the southwest corner of I-44 and Hwy 109 (across from the QT).  Carpooling will be a must, there is very limited parking at Young CA.  So, we will meet first than carpool to the CA.  As a result, if you plan to attend, please e-mail me back letting me know.


DESTINATION:  Hilda Young CA, Jefferson County


TARGET BIRDS:  Early spring arrivals, American Woodcock, and whatever owl species we can get a response from.



- enough Water/Drink for the evening from 5:30 to dark. 

- snacks if you need them

- bins, scope if you have one, field guide


WEATHER:  This walk will be held rain or shine.


DRESS:  Shoes that you do not mind getting dirty, there will be walking and possibly some in tall grass or in muddy conditions.


LEADERS:  Joshua Uffman


If you have any questions or need further clarification, etc., please contact me at the below e-mail address or call:  314.387.8037


Hope to see some of you on Saturday,
