Field Trip: Hopkins Demonstration Forest with Dan van den Broek

We will hike the extensive trail system of this 140-acre forest in Oregon City. We expect to find the common inhabitants of the Pacific Northwest coniferous forest such as Varied Thrush, Golden-crowned Kinglet and Red-breasted Sapsucker. In the clearing and brushy patches we will find various sparrows and new migrants will be arriving daily. We hope to find a nice variety of warblers, flycatchers and vireos.

Please dress for the weather. You will drive yourself for the day. Dan will reach out with further details before the trip. 

Trip limited to 8 participants at this location.

This outdoor program will follow all physical distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration. Masks required. Please feel free to bring your own spotting scope if you have one. Scroll down for details.
