Spring has sprung and many migratory birds have returned for the season! Please join Salem Audubon members Tim Johnson and Mike Unger as they lead us on a guided walk to look for and listen to the many species of birds on the J2E Tree Farm. No prior birding experience is required, and extra binoculars will be available if you need to borrow a pair.
The J2E is a privately owned property located along the Luckiamute River and south along Vincent Creek across the valley from Fort Hoskins. 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 hope you can join us and see what we can discover this year! 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.
Registration for this bird walk is limited, so make sure to RSVP below to guarantee a spot! Please note that due to space limitations, we are only allowing one additional guest to be added to each RSVP form.
A big thank you goes to Benton Soil & Water Conservation District for providing the funding that allows us to make this event free of charge. Thanks also to Dave and Sarah Ehlers, who are graciously allowing us to tour their property, and introducing us to the many different habitats found at their tree farm!
