Excursion: Oak Island Exploration

Join Dan van den Broek and Candace Larson as we explore the natural history of this delightful and diverse Sauvie Island hotspot. After a virtual orientation to the island on Thursday, we’ll lace up our hiking shoes Friday morning. We’ll wander along a wide and flat 2-mile trail through grasslands, Oak woodlands and lakeshore, looking for birds, butterflies and dragonflies galore. Early July is a great time to encounter a wide variety of breeding songbirds as well as woodpeckers, raptors and the occasional shorebird as well.

*You must take the virtual class if you plan to attend the excursion. The excursion is limited to 8 participants, in order to maintain strict physical distancing in the field. 

$20 – $30
