Join the Deschutes Land Trust, Kara Jakse, and Coleen Pidgeon for a bird walk at picturesque Indian Ford Meadow Preserve. Watch for hummingbirds and kinglets in the willows along Indian Ford Creek and songbirds in the sage flats as you take in the views of Mt Jefferson and the Three Sisters.

Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.
