NEXT SATURDAY: Nov. 22, 10 am, we will join Steve Pearson, biologist from Madison Co. Conservation Board, to hike the Clanton Creek Natural Resource Area near Peru and listen to Steve showcase the management plans for the largest contiguous woodland in Madison Co.. Meet at the MCCB headquarters, 2273 Clark Tower Road, and caravan to the hike. Having this protected area is one reason that SIOSA is interested in working with and funding projects in Madison Co. The area is part of the designated bird habitat (bird conservation areas) that the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service now uses to prioritize restoration project funding. Visit this link for further information from our joint August meeting between For Lands Sake! and SIOSA. Call 462-3536 to pre-register (encouraged).
