Milwaukee Lakeshore 2018 1 6 IMG 1249 SouthShoreYachtClub

Our January field trip will travel by car caravan to visit a variety of lakefront locations in Milwaukee, then northward to Port Washington. We'll hope to search wintering gull flocks for Lesser and Great Blackbacked Gulls, as well as Glaucous and Iceland Gulls. We expect to find an assortment of waterfowl, including possibly scoters and Long-tailed Duck, and a Snowy Owl is always possible. Dress warmly and bring your "energy" foods.

 Trip registration opens on December 7th, 2023.
Initially this event will be open only to WSO members and our field trips are free for members. Non-members are able to sign up within 14 days of the trip for a nominal fee of $10 per adult if spots remain open on trips with attendance limits. Further details about trip logistics will be sent to registrants prior to each field trip.
