Join Amy Sanchez for a bird walk at Camp Polk Meadow Preserve.

Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Amy Sanchez for a bird walk at one of Central Oregon’s birding hot spots–Camp Polk Meadow Preserve.

Enjoy a leisurely stroll around Hindman Springs and into the meadow as you learn about the birds that inhabit this Preserve. Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.
