Calling all bird enthusiasts! Grab your binoculars and join GLT and naturalists, Lisa Millbank and Don Boucher, for a morning of birding at Bald Hill Farm. The Farm’s fields and woodlands host a wide variety of birds, and listening is a great way to experience them. Migration will be in full swing, and we’ll try to find the rare Oregon vesper sparrow. We’ll discuss the basics of birding by ear, and help birders of all skill levels identify what they’re hearing. This Earth Day event is sure to fill up quickly, so reserve your spot today!
Don Boucher and Lisa Millbank are renowned birders and instructors who promote the understanding and appreciation of local nature through their Neighborhood Naturalist program.
For more information and to sign up for this walk (spaces are limited), please email Rebecca.
“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.
