Birding at Ford’s Pond – May

May 11

Ford's Pond

A Year of Birding at Ford’s Pond – Monthly Birding Fieldtrips – 2nd Saturday of each Month

 Join Umpqua Valley Audubon for a monthly morning field trip to Ford’s Pond in Sutherlin to experience the birds and the seasons together.  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 birders in attendance, but we also encourage a group effort to spot and ID birds. Walks will be approximately 2 hours long. Participants can leave when they need to. Currently the ADA accessibility paved pathway is halfway around the pond. It will be completed at some point during our year of birding. A porta-potty is available at the Church St. parking lot until the restrooms are completed.

Specific details for each month’s date will be updated close to the event

No registration is required.

Meet: 9 am at Ford’s Pond -382 Church Rd parking lot.  From I-5 take Exit 136, drive west on Hwy 138 and at 1 mile, turn left onto Church Rd. Bring water, snacks, and/or lunch along with your birding optics.

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. If a family with children knows ahead of time they will attend, giving us a heads up would be appreciated, but okay if unable to.  We will have local volunteer birders in attendance, but we also encourage the group to help spot and ID birds. Walks will be approximately 2 hours long. Participants can leave when they need to. Currently the ADA accessible paved pathway is halfway around the pond. It will be completed at some point during our year of birding. A porta-potty is available at the Church St. parking lot until the restrooms are completed.
