SA67 Spotted Owls 3 – Easy/Moderate hike | 2017 – SOLD OUT
Time - 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Green Diamond Resource Company
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. The owls may be seen roadside, but more likely will require a hike along a short but possibly steep forest trail. Wear hiking boots and dress in layers. Once the group goes beyond the property gate, there will be no way to meet up with them so please do be punctual at start time. 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 (Repeats on Sunday as event # SU90 with a moderate to difficult hike).
This event is fully booked.
