CLEAR LAKE STATE PARK – “Chick Flick – Birds courting, mating, nesting and feeding young,” will be featured at the Visitor Center auditorium at 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20.
This is first showing of a new 37-minute DVD by Dr. Ron Goor. His work provides an inspiring look into the lives of local bird species, like the killdeer, as well as species in other areas of the U.S. and other countries.
The viewer comes away with a greater understanding of the complexities in the lives of birds. Dr. Goor has visited Lake County and was inspired by what he saw here.
Note that the correct Visitor Center hours for September will be Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with shorter hours on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
While in the visitor center, check out the exhibits. Of special interest in the gift shop, are “fold” cards for easy identification of birds, insects and flowers, great for both children and adults.
On Sunday, Sept. 28, meet at the visitor center ramp at 8:30 a.m. for a nature walk led by Val Nixon.
There is no entrance fee to the park for participating in programs, walks or visiting the museum.
