Third Saturday Bird Walk-July 20

Summer walks are not always walks! In July, Dick Lamster and Maeve Sowles will lead a bird-watching-by-canoe/kayak trip to Fern Ridge Lake. You will need to furnish your own canoe or kayak and lifejackets (required). Each craft ten feet or longer will need an Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention Permit. See boatoregon.com for details. Bring binoculars, if you have them. To reserve a spot on this trip and/or to get more information, call Dick at 541.343.8664. If you do not have a canoe or kayak, call anyway because other participants may have extra space in their craft. Last year we identified 44 species of birds and have seen more than 50 species in some years. This is a unique way to get closer to birds for easier identification.

All ages and skill levels are welcome. Bring binoculars, if you have them. We plan to return by noon. Remember that it’s not a good idea to leave valuables or your vehicle registration in your car if you leave it at the lot. A $3 donation is appreciated to help support Lane County Audubon’s activities. The Florence-area meet-up site is subject to change, depending on weather and rare bird sightings. Up-to date information will be posted on the LCAS Facebook page: facebook.com/pages/Lane-County-Audubon-Society/330177413824, and on the website: laneaudubon.org. Or email Rebecca: fieldtrips@laneaudubon.org.
