Join Oregon Wild’s Wildlands Interpreter, Wendell Wood, and Klamath Marsh National Wildlife Refuge Manager, Mike Johnson to spend Saturday assisting the refuge staff doing a work project erecting (already constructed) perches for raptors and birds of prey.
Oregon Wild and the refuge can provide inside sleeping and kitchen accommodations for up to 18 total participants at two rural area locations. You may also camp out, bring a travel trailer, but still use the kitchen and restroom facilities. Participants may also stay Sunday night.
Enjoy and explore the 40,000 acre Klamath Marsh NWR. For those working less on Saturday, the refuge manager asks that you record species of birds seen on the refuge.
