Cancelled Due to Low Water Levels--Saturday July 18 Canoe/kayak birding trip to Fern Ridge Lake
Saturday July 18 Canoe/kayak birding trip to Fern Ridge Lake is canceled due to LOW water levels at Fern Ridge Reservoir.
We are sorry this is the case but cannot navigate the Coyote Creek channel because of hazard trees and debris in the shallow water.
Dick Lamster and Maeve Sowles will lead a bird-watching-by-canoe/kayak trip to Fern Ridge Lake on Saturday, July 18. This is a unique way to get closer to birds for easier identification. Last year we identified 49 species of birds and have seen more than 50 species in some years. We expect to maintain social distancing during this event and will not share optics.
Participants need to furnish their own canoe or kayak and lifejackets (required). Each craft ten feet or longer will need a Waterway Access Permit (previously called an Aquatic Invasive Species Permit). FMI: boatoregon.com.
To reserve a spot on the trip and/or get more information, call Dick at 541.343.8664.
