This event meets at the Hoopa Tribal Forestry Office at 40 Orchard St in Hoopa at 6:30am, a 1.5 hour drive from Arcata. (120 miles roundtrip. Truck or SUV recommended.) Hwy 299 to Willow Creek then left on Hwy 96 to Hoopa. Worth the trip!
With the help of a Hoopa Tribal Forestry biologist, the elusive Ruffed Grouse has been located on past field trips. Northwestern California forests are the only place in the state where the Ruffed Grouse is regularly found. The Hoopa Tribal lands just north of Willow Creek have a rich and diverse natural wildlife and human culture. This trip may also encounter Sooty Grouse, Mountain Quail and other forest birds. Bring a reusable water bottle, expect variable terrain, and restrooms are available in Hoopa and Willow Creek.
