On Saturday, April 7 the group will carpool south to Wood River Wetlands and other key wildlife hot spots surrounding Upper Klamath Lake (Oregon’s largest lake).  We will end the day at the Miller Island Unit of the Klamath Wildlife Area - a prime staging area in early spring for migrating Ross's, Snow, and White-front Geese.

On Sunday, we will explore the edges of the Klamath Marsh National Wildlife Refuge (with an option for early risers to venture out in hopes of finding a Great Grey Owl).

Depart Sunday afternoon, or stay over until Monday morning for those wishing to further explore, bird, hike, or independently mountain bike or canoe on Sunday afternoon.

We will pot luck dinner on Friday night, prior to an evening, conservation and wildlife slide presentation at 7:30 PM.  We will eat at a Mexican or Japanese restaurant in Klamath Falls on Saturday evening.
