Audubon Birding Day: Hiking and Sunset at Mount St. Helens with Gina Roberti & Erin Law *FULL*
Let’s explore the diverse habitats created by the 1980 volcanic eruption and observe the birds that live there. We will learn about where to see some of Mount St. Helen’s signature birds and visit the best and most accessible birding sites on the north side of Mount St. Helens including the Hummocks trail, Coldwater Lake, and the Boundary Trail. The Hummocks Trail is a Washington State birding trail. Our trip will focus on habitat type and distribution and will include a substantial amount of hiking (up to 3.5 miles). The end-of-day timing is designed to align with early evening birdsong and bird activity.
Our field trip will offer a few fantastic views of Mount St. Helens on clear days. For the best views into the crater, visit Johnston Ridge Observatory before or after the field trip.
Meeting Location: Coldwater Lake Picnic Area
