*FULL* Fern Ridge Wildlife Area

Join Stefan for a day trip to Fern Ridge Wildlife Area. We will work our way towards Fern Ridge Wildlife Area on this summer day in search of migrant shorebirds and maybe even passerines.

Grebes will still be present and maybe even terns. There is often good shorebird habitat off the end of Royal Ave. We may make additional stops in appropriate habitat for shorebirds en route, like Baskett Slough NWR. Prepare for a hot day where we will be out in the open a lot. We will take appropriate measures to stay cool and hydrated though. Should be fun day!
