Little Willamette Bird Walk **FULL – Waitlist Available**

This event is full, please contact Matt Benotsch for the waitlist, mbenotsch@greenbeltlandtrust.org

Join Greenbelt Land Trust and our 2020 Volunteer of the Year, Paul Adamus, for a bird walk and tour of Little Willamette, a 199 acre property protected with a conservation easement in 2009, located in the floodplain of the Willamette River between Corvallis and Albany in Linn County.

 

Ten years of floodplain forest and prairie restoration by Greenbelt at Little Willamette has resulted in a more diverse and productive landscape for birds and other wildlife. Paul has been monitoring birds at Little Willamette and our other Willamette River floodplain restoration sites to document their numbers and use of different habitats and will share his expertise and observations as we bird the property.

Vernal pools are shallow depressions in wetlands or on other slow to drain soils that fill up with water in the fall and winter and dry up completely in the summer. They are home to many plant and animal species, and important habitat for migrating birds looking for a snack along their journey.
