Description

The riparian woodland and areas of Butte Creek Ecological Preserve are biological hot-spots! We will explore this dynamic 93-acre preserve, and likely witness a variety of wildlife and birds. See how the creek and canyon setting shapes ecological conditions and influences habitat for wildlife and special status species, such as Chinook salmon and Bald Eagles. Participants should plan for full participation and hiking rain or shine on relatively flat but uneven terrain. Bring a lunch, water, and binoculars.
