Join us for Wild Writings!
CCAS is proud to present a new initiative that aims to unite and connect people that enjoy nature-related literature. Our new reading group – Wild Writings – will officially start up for the fall season on October 21st! Each month, participants will read a short segment of nature-related literature and have an informal meeting (via Zoom) to discuss the reading.
If you’d like to know more about Wild Writings, or if you are interested in joining our reading group, please email our Program Chair, Alida de Flamingh, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

SAVE THE DATE
Sandhill Cranes at Jasper-Pulaski
Each year we look forward to seeing thousands of
cranes at the Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area in
Indiana during their autumn migration. This year, we
will meet around 11am on Saturday at Anita Purves
Nature Center parking lot and caravan to JasperPulaski, stopping to do some birding at a few spots
along the way. The cranes fly in at sunset, so plan
to leave Jasper Pulaski after dark.
