  •  July 8, Saturday, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM Dolan Nature Sanctuary field trip, led by Cal Lamoreaux.  It is 5 miles east of Caledonia. This area has been preserved from development for over 40 years. It is mostly hardwoods floodplain forest, with a 2 mile loop trail and several meadow prairies that contain bluestem grass. Because of the moderately thick brush, visitors may get rather close looks at birds and deer.
