Event description

Description

Hike Leader: Diane Randgaard, Nest Box Trail Coordinator

Hike Rating: Easy; 3 miles

This easy, level hike will include stops to monitor six bluebird and two kestrel nest boxes. We may see nests, eggs, baby birds, and some surprises! Families and children are encouraged to participate. Children that are interested can complete a scavenger hunt checklist to help them discover their surroundings while we hike.

We will meet at the end of the gravel section of Peninsula Road where there is a cattle grate and kiosk where public lands begin. We will hike in on Peninsula Drive along the Crooked River rim, leaving the road at times to walk short distances to check nest boxes. This road has some rocky, uneven terrain, but it is generally easy to walk. Wear comfortable closed-toe shoes and comfortable hiking clothes with layers. Bring water and a snack. Bring binoculars if you have them. We will leave promptly at 8:00 a.m., so please be punctual.

Group size is limited to 10 people, and dogs are not allowed on this hike. If you sign up and later need to cancel, please do so as soon as possible so that people on the wait list can be invited to join this hike. Thank you!

Driving directions: Travel north on Chinook Drive. Turn left onto SW Mustang Rd. Take the first right to stay on SW Mustang Rd. Turn right onto SW Shad Rd. Turn right onto SW Peninsula Dr.
