Come learn about the newest Rogue Valley conservation restoration project as you drink coffee at the new feeder, and stroll along the wide open meadow of Dead Indian Creek. All field trip proceeds go toward the “Bird-Blind Building” fund for 2019 at Vesper Meadow. Local birding trip leader Nate Trimble, and Vesper Meadow Program Director Jeanine Moy will lead a late morning walk in the open air of the Casade-siskiyou upland meadows. While spring migrants have mostly gone, there are opportunities to see raptors, woodpeckers, grassland birds, mountain bluebirds, and the possibility of Great Gray Owls. The unusually warm autumn this year offers the possibility of late fall migration flocks as well. Regardless of what birds we find, visitors are guaranteed a pleasant hike through a beautiful place and a chance to learn about habitat restoration, Southern Oregon ecology, local land use history and an exciting new conservation project.
There is no registration or limit on number of participants for this event. Please bring $10 in cash or check made out to Vesper Meadow Restoration and Education LLC.
