Bird walk, butterfly count coming up Saturday at refuge

A bird walk is set for Saturday at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge, 12987 E. U.S. 50, Seymour.

The easy, slow-paced stroll will start at 8 a.m. at the visitor center, and everyone is welcome.

Bird walks are conducted on the third Saturday of the month.

This Saturday actually will be a double feature at the refuge, as people also can participate in a butterfly count at 9:30 a.m. Binoculars, a hat and insect repellent are recommended.
