Buddy's Place, Faville Grove Sanctuary
6:55 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
There is simply no better way to start the New Year. If there is good snow and you have snowshoes, bring them along. Otherwise, sturdy boots for uneven terrain will do. Enjoy the predawn light as you meander through the prairie, arriving at the marsh overlook by 7:23 a.m. to see the sun rise over the Faville Grove Marsh. The group will spend the early morning exploring the winter marsh and surrounding uplands.
