Leaders: Nathan Trimble (RVAS), Jeanine Moy (RVAS + KS Wild), George Sexton (KS Wild Conservation Director)
Join us on a collaborative hike hosted by RVAS and Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center. We will tour a couple of mature conifer forest locations adjacent to the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. In known habitat for Great Grey Owl and Northern Spotted Owl, we’ll search for nests and watch for songbirds in a couple of sites proposed for BLM logging: the Griffin Half Moon and North Landscape proposed timber sales. KS Wild will discuss the implications of the proposed timber sales, and how to get involved to protect owl habitat. Meet at Rite-Aid in Ashland at 8:00 am for carpool; we’ll return by 2:00 pm. Expect moderate walking, walking off-trail on flat but uneven terrain. Make sure to bring layers of clothing, hiking boots, binoculars (we’ll have a few to lend), snacks + lunch + water.
