WINTER RIVER BOTTOM FIELD TRIP BIRDS, TRACKS AND PLANT ADAPTATIONS
January 18 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PMfree
Join FAS Conservation Educator and long-time teaching naturalist Denny Olson on a winter hike in Kalispell on Saturday, January 19 from 1-4 pm. Winter birds, bird songs, tracking, botanizing, and seat-of-the-pants interpretation will be the unstructured itinerary. This is one of the best spots in the area to see Pileated and other woodpeckers, many kinds of chickadees, Bohemian and Cedar waxwings in flocks of thousands, Pine Grosbeaks, Townsend’s Solitaires — and there’s always an unexpected bird. Not just ID, but lots of natural history lore, which is Denny’s trademark. Dress warmly, bring binoculars and snow boots, and check with us on the need for snowshoes if the snow is deep. We have binoculars and field guides if you need them. Call Denny at 249-3987, or contact at email@example.com to register and get directions.
