A new take on one of our most popular tours! Join us for our next eagle viewing tour in the Columbia River Gorge.
Join us as we travel east through the Columbia Gorge to the lower Klickitat River to learn about and view bald eagles that gather here in the winter to feed on salmon. Bird expert C.J. Flick will teach us about eagle behavior and identification tips as we view the regal congregation of bald eagles.
During the trip, we’ll learn about the conservation and restoration of several sites in the Columbia River Gorge with Land Trust Forest Conservation Director Cherie Kearney. We’ll stop along the way to hear about the region’s ecology and native species including overwintering waterfowl, pika, and western pond turtles from Clark College Professor of Biology Steven Clark.
In the afternoon, we’ll stop for lunch and hear from Columbia Land Trust board member and Yakama Nation member and fisheries biologist, Elaine Harvey. Elaine will share her intimate knowledge of Mid Columbia River Indian bands, history and traditions.
