On Sunday, April 22, the Lake Erie Islands Conservancy will hold an Earth Day walk at the Scheeff East Point Preserve. Meet in the parking lot at 10 a.m. to learn about spring arrivals of our summer residents–purple martins and tree swallows–with Paula Ziebarth. View the new Chimney Swift Tower purchased by LEIC member Karen Jennings and built by member Casey Carty. We will have garbage bags and buckets to clean up the shoreline from winter storms. We will also bring some binoculars for visitors to enjoy closer looks at our early arrivals.
After a walk and clean up, we will head to the Jane Coates Wildflower Trail for some invasive garlic mustard pulling and early spring wildflower viewing. Do your part to ensure that the Dutchman’s breeches continue to grow at the Wildflower Trail. Gloves and bags will be provided. Heineman’s winery will provide water.
Celebrate Earth Day and spring with us!
