Birds of Prey Tour in the Mission Valley

February 3 @ 9:00 AM 3:00 PM

Join Laura Katzman of Flathead Land Trust and Jess Garby on Saturday, February 3, 9am-3pm for a tour of the Mission Valley to look for wintering birds of prey. Jess Garby has worked extensively studying migrating raptors in the west, and Laura Katzman has been working to protect farmland in the Mission Valley that is important habitat to wintering birds of prey. The tour route will be based on local raptor surveys and will also include lands important to these raptors that are in the process of being conserved west of Pablo and Ronan. Participants should see Rough-legged Hawks, Red-tailed Hawks, Northern Harrier, Bald Eagles, falcons, and possibly Golden Eagles. Space is limited and sign up is required. Carpooling will be necessary as no more than four cars will be taken on the tour. Please e-mail Laura at: lkatzman@flatheadlandtrust.org to sign up and get information on where to meet.
