100 Birds of Summer: Families Gone Birding
Join Teresa Wicks, Portland Audubon’s Eastern Oregon Field Coordinator for 100 Birds of Summer, a series of family and beginning birder-friendly programs connecting people to birds and nature. Over the course of the summer, we’ll aim to see 100 bird species, from forests to wetlands, and places in-between. But don’t be fooled, this series isn’t only for serious listers, we’re aiming to create community while exploring the birds and ecosystems that Harney County has to offer. Binoculars will be available.
Families Gone Birding
This youth and family friendly outing invites youth and families to come explore the Harney Wildlife Parkway/Nature Trail. We’ll meet at the Egan Rd. Trailhead and walk at a casual pace and look for signs of baby birds and bird families along the nature trail. There will be some fun bird-themed activities for youth to do while walking and to take home.
Length: 1.5 miles roundtrip
Accessibility: This trail is wide, flat, and graveled. Travel with strollers and wheelchairs is possible but can be slow, depending on the condition of the gravel.
