January Field Trip

MILL CREEK AND ROOK’S PARK
Saturday, January 19, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Leaders: Paul and Judy Treman

Put on your walking shoes and take a leisurely walk along Mill Creek to Rooks Park. Enjoy the sights and sounds of rushing water while looking for a variety of birds and other animals. Target birds include Common and Hooded Mergansers, Common Goldeneye, Great Blue Heron, Belted Kingfisher, Ruby-crowned Kinglet and woodpeckers.

Meet at the Corps of Engineer’s Project Office parking lot located just off Reservoir Road (the road between Tausick Way and Bennington Lake). The plan is to walk upstream along the gravel path to the dam and across the timber walk-bridge to Rook’s Park. Our return will be along the Mill Creek paved path and across the metal walk-bridge to the parking lot.

This will be a good opportunity to see and learn about some of the many birds that make the Walla Walla Valley their winter home. Dress for winter weather and bring your binoculars,

All ages are welcome, the walk is free and you do not have to be a member of the Blue Mountain Audubon Society to attend. If you have any questions call or e-mail Paul and Judy at 509-527-0722 or pjtreman@charter.net
