Summer Adventures

We have a few local (mostly Cascade County) birding trips planned this summer that you can join or use for inspiration to explore further on your own.  If you would like to join our group contact Beth Hill – for details, time, where to meet and get any last minute changes.


Walk and Weed – The weather has not been very cooperative for Saturday morning weed pulling.  Here is an incentive.  Beth Hill will lead a bird walk between 7 am and 9 am on June 5th, June 19th, July 17 and July 31 (all Saturdays).  Afterwards – at 9 am we will pull weeds for about an hour.  Bring gloves to protect your hands and a digging tool.  And binoculars for the bird walk!  Contact Beth Hill – if you are interested.  Of course, you can always come to weed and not walk.


First People’s Buffalo Jump – Saturday, June 26– Explore the prairie, cliffs and coulees.  This will involve walking.  We will start at the upper parking area and explore the lower prairie dog colony afterwards.  For details of when, etc.  Contact Beth Hill –


Sluice Boxes/Little Belt Bird Exploration – Saturday July 10 – this will be a series of short walks at several “birdy spots” including a level walk to the first stream crossing at Sluice Boxes.  Expect to find some summer residents of the higher elevations.  For details of when and where to meet – contact Beth Hill,


Highwoods/Thane Creek – Saturday August 14.  Until we get to Thane Creek this trip will be a series of drive/stop/get out to look and listen.  There can be a surprising number of birds along the way if you just stop to look and listen.  Once at Thane Creek we can do some hiking – depending on the group and time.  For details of when and where to meet – contact Beth Hill,
