WINTER RIVER BOTTOM LAND HIKE: BIRDS, TRACKS, HYDROLOGY AND PLANT ADAPTATIONS
January 8 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PMfree
Join FAS Conservation Educator and long-time teaching naturalist Denny Olson on a winter hike in the Owen Sowerwine Natural Area on Sunday, January 8 from 9 AM until Noon. 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 is
always an unexpected bird! There will be 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.
Call Denny at (406) 249-3987 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up and get directions. Space is
