Field Trip to LaCreek National Wildlife Refuge

May 7, 2022

Saturday May 7th, 2022 –  Our annual field trip to Lacreek National Wildlife Refuge (near Martin, SD). Sierra Club & PHAS will be a co-sponsors of the field trip.

We will meet at the Refuge Headquarter’s building at 10 am MT. 


 Some will also meet earlier for car-pooling in Rapid City at the East-side Family Thrift/Family Fare parking lot or (south side of parking lot)

2 carpool collection times:

1. At 6:50-7 am MT (Nancy)    2. At 7:30 am MT. (Jay)

People should bring water & lunch – as this is a long day trip. Driving time to Martin is 2.5 hours

 Covid-19 safety requirements/rules are up to each car driver, so folks who wish to car-pool should bring masks – call up Nancy (early time & more strict rules) or Jay (later time & less strict rules) for their car’s rules, which may include requirements on Covid vaccination/natural immunity  and/or mask wearing habits. There may be at least one other car collecting folks at 7:30 am.  If folks are coming and willing to be an additional carpool driver, it would be nice to let Nancy know in advance (but not required).


Jedediah (our field trip chair) & some others from various locations will be either going over even earlier on Saturday morning or leaving Friday night for camping at the Refuge or staying in Martin motel.  This is so to be able to bird early in the morning.
