Field Trip - Palouse Falls - Saturday: April 19th 9:00 AM

Palouse April is a great time to see water roaring over scenic Palouse Falls with White-throated swifts and possibly a Peregrine falcon or two below the falls. So don’t miss this opportunity to join Joe Corvino as he leads this fun field trip via the back roads of northern Walla Walla County.

We will look for birds along the way and should see a variety of raptors, horned larks, meadowlarks and much more. Ferruginous hawks have frequently been seen on this field trip. A total of 36 species was seen when Joe last led this trip in 2011. Meet at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot and we will car pool.

Bring a lunch, your binoculars and a friend or two. We will eat our lunches at the picnic tables at the falls. Scopes will be available for close-up viewing. Plan to return late in the afternoon. If you plan to attend please E-Mail Joe Corvino
