Event description

Description

Because of its incredible biodiversity, a wide spectrum of species can be seen in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument all year-round. On Friday, October 11, Shannon Rio, the Klamath Bird Observatory Board President, will discuss the behaviors, songs and calls, and identifying traits of bird species commonly found in the Fall. Join us at the Geos Institute in Ashland for this evening lecture. Come and enjoy the talk, even if you are not going on the hike.

The Saturday field trip (October 12, 8:30 am to 3:30 pm) will take us through high mountain forests and meadows as we walk the Pacific Crest Trail from Highway 66 to Little Hyatt Lake. At the lake, we will stop to eat lunch and to look for water birds. Our return walk will take us along a public road back to our starting place.

Registration is required to attend the Saturday hike.
