Event Description

Join our bird walk, every 3rd Saturday of the month from 10 am – Noon, to discover, identify and revel in the aesthetics of the Bitterroot Valley landscape. All are welcome, the more eyes, the better the chances of finding cool wildlife…we don’t ignore plants and other animals. The Refuge has recorded over 240 species of birds. Times of day and year determine what species will be found; most likely every field trip will see different birds. We’ll help you learn how to identify the birds (and whatever else we encounter), and how to get the most out of binoculars and bird guides. No special gear needed – just dress for the weather and bring water and a snack. Please note the Visitor Center is no longer open on Saturdays, so the indoor restrooms at the Refuge headquarters will not be available. An accessible outhouse is available at the Wildlife Viewing Area.
