Field Trip: Fernhill Wetlands

Let’s go birding around the wetlands of the Fernhill natural water-treatment system. This area of cattail marshes, open lakes, and ponds attract a good variety of dabbling and diving ducks as well as marsh skulkers and shoreline feeders.

Please dress for the weather. You will drive yourself for the day. Dan will reach out with further details before the trip. 

Trip limited to 10 participants. 

This outdoor program will follow all physical distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration. Masks required. Please feel free to bring your own spotting scope if you have one. Scroll down for details.
