Meet: 7 am at Ford’s Pond parking lot -382 Church Rd, Sutherlin. From I-5 take Exit 136, drive west on Hwy 138 and at 1 mile, turn left onto Church Rd (**GPS may not be dependable). The walk will be approximately 2 hours long. Participants can leave when they need to.

 Additional Info:  People new to birding are always welcome to join in, as are families with children.  Loaner binoculars are available for adults and children. We will have local volunteer birders in attendance, but we also encourage the group to help spot and ID birds. We walk at a slow pace, stopping often to observe birds.

**Accessibility and trail conditions: Currently the ADA accessible paved pathway is halfway around the pond AND the other half is currently being worked on. (Completion expected by 7/31/24). We will walk from the Church St. parking lot on the paved path toward the north side of Ford’s Pond. A porta-potty is available at the Church Rd parking lot until the ADA restrooms are open.
