Coastal Predator Habitat
March 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amfree
Do you wonder if predators are nearby when you visit coastal wild lands? Join Nehalem Bay State Park ranger Mariah Dawson for a walk through the meadows, marshland and creekside of Alder Creek Farm and Natural Area. Learn about area predators, where they roam, other birds and animals who share their habitat, and how to recognize the signs – droppings, footprints and more – of predator presence. This event will be suitable for children of all ages, as well as adults.
Assemble in the parking area of Alder Creek Farm, at 9:45. Dress for the weather. Waterproof boots or shoes recommended.
Accessibility: The walk will take place on uneven marshy ground, near a creek bank and ditches, while the area is level, it is not suitable for persons unsteady on their feet. Parking is on a gravel area at the end of Underhill Lane. Dogs are not allowed on Natural Area grounds.
