Leader: Pepper Trail
Birds & the Rogue River
Look for Lewis’s Woodpeckers, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Wood Ducks and Pygmy Owls during this private tour of the Southern Oregon Land Conservancy’s Rogue River Preserve, exploring vernal pools, oak woodlands, chaparral and the riparian forest along the Rogue River.
Difficulty: Moderately easy and flat at a slow birding pace walking on roads, trails, and off-trail.
Directions: Car pool from Dollar Tree at 7338 Crater Lake Hwy, White City, OR 97503. The parking lot is accessible from both highways, but the entrance and parking lot fronts HWY 140. Meet in the northeastern portion of the parking lot by 7:30 a.m.
Other: No restrooms are available. There may be a porta-potty present. Bring binoculars, your favorite bird book, water, and snacks. Weed seeds and ticks may be present so long pants and closed-toed sturdy shoes are advised.
