Birding & Blooms with Lorelle Sherman
Grab your binoculars and join us to listen for the song of migratory and resident birds while learning how to identify wildflowers! Lorelle will guide you through multiple habitat types in hopes of maximizing the number of bird and wildflower species encountered. Together, we will focus on how to identify birds by sight and song with information on life history and ecology sprinkled throughout. Students will learn to identify the abundant native wildflowers encountered along the trail, the wildlife dependent on them, and the impacts of invasive species on the ecosystem. Join us for a deeper dive into the natural history of Western Oregon ecosystems! This outing will be held in the town of Cloverdale, Oregon. An exact meeting location will be provided 5 days prior to the forage date.
