SA59 Spotted Owls 3 – Easy/Moderate Hike | 2020 | $25
Time - 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Green Diamond Resource Co
Meet in the community center lobby.
This trip is a “wow!” experience as we visit excellent spots to observe Northern Spotted Owls in their nesting habitat. This trip offers superb photographic opportunities, as the owls have become accustomed to human presence over the years they have been studied. The biologists at GDRC are quite knowledgeable on the subject of Spotted Owl biology, and they are happy to share their experiences with these birds. The owls come amazingly close as they swoop down for the offered mice by the GDRC biologist. Wear hiking boots and dress in layers. This trip will not stop for food or restrooms. You may want to have a spotting scope available in your vehicle if we stop to scan for eagles, but it won’t be needed to see the owls. Once the carpool group is led through the timberland property gates, there will not be opportunity to meet up with them so please be punctual at start time. (Repeats on Sunday as #SU81-Moderate/Advanced Hike).
