On Wednesday,  Jan. 3,  2018, the First Wednesday Bird Walk will move to the Denman Wildlife Area, and all future walks will take place there. Walks begin at 8:30 a.m. and end before noon.

Participants will need to purchase a ODFW Area Parking Permit at the ODWF Office, Sportsman Warehouse on Delta Waters and Highway 62 in Medford or at BiMart. (At BiMart, buy a 2018 Habitat Conservation Stamp for $20, which also includes the Annual Wildlife Area Parking Permit).

“It will be interesting to see how things have changed in the last four years since the restoration was made at the Denman Wildlife Refuge,” said Murray Orr, leader of the walk.
