Join the Deschutes Land Trust, Duke Tufty, and Merrill Maiano for a bird walk at one of Central Oregon's birding hot spots--Camp Polk Meadow Preserve. Tune your ear and focus your binoculars as you stroll around Hindman Springs and into the meadow, watching for warblers in the willows and woodpeckers working the pine groves. More than 160 species of birds have been observed at the Preserve--see how many you can find. Beginners welcome! Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.
