A Bird’s Eye View: Kids Bird Walk

Let’s celebrate Migratory Bird Day! Join Greenbelt Land Trust and Chintimini Wildlife Center for a special kid-friendly bird walk at Bald Hill Farm conservation area. We’ll identify birds, tour a wildlife habitat restoration site created by local 3rd-graders, and learn about the Willamette-Laja partnership that links bird conservation between Oregon and Mexico.  Hands-on activities for kids include stewarding plants for bird habitat and making a bird-themed craft to take home. There will also be special appearances by live Chintimini bird ambassadors!

**CANCELLED**Birding with OSU Walk

“What are all those bird boxes about?” This is one of the top questions that we get asked at Greenbelt Land Trust about Bald Hill Farm. The rows of bird boxes are a promient fixture alongside the trail systems, allowing hikers to view birds flitting about between pastures, tree lines, and boxes. Come find out what all those boxes are about! This free, family-friendly event will allow participants to understand some of the research projects going on at Bald Hill Farm by OSU to study swallow and bluebird populations. Walk with Jim Rivers (OSU Forest Ecosystems and Society) as he discusses the goals of the various projects being monitored on the Farm.
