Audubon Birding Day: Tracing the White River with Brodie Cass Talbott
We will ride together in a van. Masks are required in the van and optional otherwise.
The White River starts high on the south flanks of Mt. Hood as the snowmelt of one of the mountain’s largest glaciers. From there, it careens through boulder fields, winds through basalt gorges, and tumbles over the massive White River Falls before its terminus at the Deschutes River. On this van-based trip, we’ll visit the river at access points along the way to view its unique geology, exploring the varied flora and fauna along the way – from Cassin’s Finch and Clark’s Nutcracker in the alpine conifers, to Lewis’s Woodpeckers and Townsend’s Solitaires in the low elevation oaks and sage.
