Field Trips

Wednesday, April 16th
Jordan River Parkway At 126th South
Leader: Pomera Fronce

Beat the income tax blues by joining us for a pleasant walk along the Jordan River Parkway. This will be a great opportunity to look for early spring arrivals including migrating shorebirds at the mitigation wetlands. To honor this popular April color, we’ll be looking for our own kind of blue - Great Blue Heron, Blue-winged Teal, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Mountain Bluebird, Blue Grosbeak and Bluefooted Booby (okay, so we’re not going to find this one).

Our three mile walk on a flat, paved surface will take about three hours.

Call Pomera at 272-2755 for meeting time and place.

Field trips have to be planned well in advance.
Occasionally we have to cancel a trip, or location or times change.
Therefore it is important to confirm details with the leader.

Beginners and guests are always welcome on Audubon field trips.
