February Wetland Wander
Join WREN and BLM staff for a 3-4 mile hike at See Sil site. See Sil is comprised of white and black oak Savanna, upland, and wet prairie ecosystems. We will talk about some of the recent projects, such as the prescribed burn, look for signs of the acorn woodpecker colony that inhabits the site, and explore other seasonal changes. Conditions are wet, muddy, and hummocky. Please come prepared with appropriate footwear and bring binoculars. Participants are asked to meet at the west end of Royal Ave near the gravel parking lot.
Directions: Take Royal Avenue west to the ODFW parking lot at Fern Ridge Reservoir. If you have an ODFW permit you may park in the lot, otherwise park along Royal Ave. The site is on the north side of Royal, to the east of the house near the end of the road; look for the gate with BLM signage, and WREN staff.
