NEW – This year we have a very special opportunity to tour the managed wetlands developed by Dino Cortopassi. Affectionately called the “Black Hole,” this refuge for waterfowl is unique in many ways. Trevor Carlson will meet you at the clubhouse for an introductory discussion before loading a small bus for a tour of the grounds. You will see areas of habitat restoration that have been specifically designed for Wood Ducks and Mallards. Originally designed as a hunting club, the family’s love of nature has made this an oasis for all kinds of wildlife and waterfowl. The Black Hole is surrounded by rice fields that attract thousands of Sandhill Cranes and they are often seen along Woodbridge Road. Bring a sack lunch, if you like, and have a picnic after the tour.
TOUR TIME: 9:30 – 11:30 a.m.
Enter the property at 13254 Woodbridge Road and follow the drive to the clubhouse. Watch for a lookout tower near the clubhouse.
