On Saturday, December 2, 2017, this annual trip is a favorite for hard-core WAS members. Because access to the landfill is restricted, we rent vans for the trip and have to limit the number of participants. First priority goes to Washtenaw Audubon members who have not recently been on this trip. Second priority will be given to Washtenaw Audubon members who have previously attended this trip. Third on the priority list are non-members, who may be placed on a wait list on a first come, first served basis and will be admitted three days before the trip to fill any remaining spots. There are 24 spots available.

 If you are not a member, but want to join, please visit our membership page.

Due to the high cost of renting and fueling large passenger vans, we are asking for a minimum donation of $5 from each participant. This is not required, but will help us offset some of the costs and allow us to continue to provide this trip into the future. Please give your donation to the trip leader on the day of the trip.

Register for the trip using this registration form [CLICK HERE]. 

Meet at 8:30 a.m. at the far south end of the Park-n-Ride lot at Plymouth Road and US 23. Please do not be late! We want to be in the vans and driving by 8:45. This trip will take about 4 hours. Please note that the weather for this outing can be extremely cold and that there is usually wind on the heights of the landfill, where participants will be spending most of the time. Dress warmly! (This means dress for temperatures at least ten degrees colder than your morning thermometer reading. This is not an active trip where you will be generating heat through movement.)
