Native Oaks Ridge Bird Walk 

Join the Coast Fork Birders for a bird walk at the Native Oaks Ridge property. The land features unique oak habitat and the walk will provide a snapshot of bird species post-implementation of the oak release restoration project. Will likely also include opportunities to observe butterflies and flowering plants. The path covers uneven rolling hill terrain. Bring weather-appropriate clothing and footwear, binoculars, and bird identification book if you have them, (we have some spares in case you don’t), and your own snacks and water. Please RSVP to the Coast Fork Office 541.767.0717 or email
