Indian Ford Creek Restoration and the Birds of Calliope Crossing
September 3, 2019$65 – $75
Join Sisters U.S. Forest Service silviculturist Will Brendecke and wildlife biologist Julie York in an overview of the Sisters area “Indian Ford Creek Restoration Project.” They will discuss the management history of the area, current condition of the aquatic and terrestrial habitat, and the long-term restoration objectives of the project. Of special interest to local birders is Calliope Crossing, a spot along Indian Ford Creek with excellent birding opportunities for spotting Calliope hummingbirds, woodpeckers, sapsuckers, multiple flycatcher species, and pygmy owls. Local birder Judy Meredith will highlight the birds commonly found at Calliope Crossing, as well as discussing why we should care about the planned habitat changes to this favorite Central Oregon birding spot. The program starts at 6:30 pm at the Environmental Center. The Indian Ford Creek Restoration project discussion will run from 7:30 to 8:30. ECAS members, friends, neighbors and central Oregon visitors are all welcome.
