The Audubon Society of Lincoln City will be heading north this Saturday, Aug. 12, for a guided walk at Kilchis Point Reserve near Bay City.
Situated on 200 acres of mixed woodlands bordering Tillamook Bay, the reserve has two miles of flat trails and provides good habitat for warblers and thrushes as well as birds of prey. Fall migration has begun, so the group will also be keeping an eye out for sandpipers and other shorebirds.
The excursion will run from 9 to 11 am, with walkers meeting at the trailhead, across from the Habitat for Humanity Restore at the south end of Bay City.
For more information, directions or details on carpooling, call 541-992-9720.
