Third Saturday Bird Walk October 20 at Kirk Pond with Dave Bontrager-Meet at the west end of Kirk Pond
Our October walk leader is Dave Bontrager. The location of the walk will be Kirk Pond below the Fern Ridge Dam. We'll meet in the parking lot across the highway from the Fern Ridge Dam spillway.
Directions to Kirk Pond. There are many good ways to get there and here is one suggestion. Take 11th west out of Eugene. When you get to Greenhill turn right (north) onto Greenhill. Take Greenhill approx. 3.5 mi. to Clear Lake Rd. Turn left (west) onto Clear Lake Rd. Clear Lake does some "jogging" around but eventually you will come to Orchard Point County Park. On the left you will see a large wooden sign saying Orchard Point >> keep going on Clear Lake Road, past Orchard Rd and continue along with Kirk Pond on your right. Look for the small parking lot near the road just below the spillway, turn right and park in the lot.
Details will be posted on the LCAS Facebook page: facebook.com/pages/Lane-County-Audubon-Society/330177413824, and on our website: laneaudubon.org. FMI: Rebecca Waterman at 541.653.3354 or Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org
All ages and skill levels are welcome. Bring binoculars, if you have them. To carpool, meet at 8 a.m. at the South Eugene High School parking lot, corner of 19th and Patterson. We plan to return by noon. Remember that it’s not a good idea to leave valuables or your vehicle registration in your car, if you leave it at the lot. A $3 donation is appreciated to help support Lane County Audubon’s activities.
