Spring has sprung and many migratory birds have returned for the season! Please join Salem Audubon members Joel Geier and Tim Johnson as they lead us on a guided walk to look for and listen to the many species of birds on the J2E Tree Farm. 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!
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 the Ehlers family, who have invited us to enjoy strolling through their beautiful acreage.
Note that this event will involve walking across rough and uneven ground through oak woodlands, upland prairie and riparian forest, so make sure to dress for the weather, wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes, and don't forget your water bottle. You are also invited to bring a bag lunch and a lawn chair for an optional picnic lunch at the J2E pond after the bird walk.
Feel free to bring your binoculars, bird guide and camera, if you'd like! We will also have extra binoculars for use during the event.
