Benton Chapter OSWA Spring Walk - Birds of the Forest
Local expert Joel Geier and Salem Audubon Standout Mike Unger will lead a tour on Sarah & Dave Ehlers J2E Tree Farm located along the Luckiamute River and Vincent Creek, across the valley from Fort Hoskins. Join us for a leisurely stroll through the woods, listening, calling and viewing our local bird population. The walk will be just over a mile on fairly flat mowed paths and gravel roads and will explore a variety of habitats including ponds, riparian areas with mixed hardwood & conifer forests, oak woodlands, upland prairie and coniferous forests. We will share practices and strategies to encourage birds on your property. No prior birding experience is required, and extra binoculars will be available if you need to borrow a pair.
Weather permitting, you are invited to bring a lawn chair and a bag lunch to enjoy a picnic by the pond located on the property after the Bird Walk.
