October 27 & 28 – Great Salt Plains Road Trip
Participants will camp at Great Salt Plains State Park and will bird the park and lake area. Our target bird will be early Whooping Cranes, but the lake should offer up plenty of other interesting locals and migrants.
Camping will be at the South Spillway Area of the park. Find a park map here: https://d1pk12b7bb81je.cloudfront.net/okdataengine/appmedia/documents/2/2865/gspsp.pdf . Some will arrive late Friday, but organized birding will not begin until Saturday morning. Generally, we will bird the east side of the lake in the morning, then the west side in the evening. In between we will be birding mostly inside the park.
Saturday’s dinner will be a pot luck meal. Les Imboden has volunteered to coordinate food items. You may email him at email@example.com or text 405-533-1532.
Leader: John Couch; firstname.lastname@example.org

Thursday Evening Presentations and Activities –
Beginning 2018, we are moving to just two evening meetings per semester (we normally track the school year) and placing greater emphasis on field trips. We will also spread the location around three different Stillwater venues, so please be sure to check here for locations. Thursday evening meetings and presentations will be held in the Education Center of the Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State University, at the Stillwater Public Library, and at Hideaway Pizza.
Visitors to the Botanic Garden can access the grounds via the South Entrance on Rt. 51. Better for evening programs, we will arrange to have the gate at the North Entrance (accessed by Virginia Avenue) open after hours. Parking will be available in lot “parking A” on the above map.
The Stillwater Public Library is located at the corner of 12th Ave. and South Duck Street.
For something fun and different, our meeting in April 2019 will be held in the meeting room at Hideaway Pizza, at the corner of University Ave. and S. Knoblock St.
