Bring a flashlight and see the annual breeding spectacle of the American Woodcock , a.k.a. Timberdoodle, "peenting" at the Riethmiller Road grassland. This prairie is a reliable and excellent observation location.
NOTE: This is an EVENING event starting at 7:30 PM.
This event will be near a full moon so may help with visibility.
It is March, we are in Michigan, and the sun will be setting-so dress warmly.
Meet at DNR parking lot, north side of Riethmiller Rd., west of St. Jacob's church (42.354913658879305 -84.18171341121054). This is a parking lot in the prairie, not the parking lot that is in the wooded area east of the church.

Weather cancellation Policy: JAS programs and activities will be cancelled if Jackson Schools close.
