2nd Annual Turtle Flats Bird Count
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 to Friday, March 2, 2018

Hello birders,

The Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council (CFWWC) and Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah look forward to teaming up to perform the 2nd Annual Bird Count at Turtle Flats on Saturday, March 10th 8-11am! Turtle Flats is the Friends' 63-acre property where they are doing extensive floodplain restoration.

This site, where the Coast Fork and Middle Fork of the Willamette River come together, is host to a diversity of species. Birders will survey a portion of the area, including some of the old gravel ponds. The survey will contribute valuable bird data over time as restoration takes place at the site. 

Advance registration is required. This event is limited to 25 participants and space may fill up quickly. This bird walk is open to birders of all birding abilities. Be prepared to walk on uneven terrain. 

Upon completion of online registration, you will receive an auto-reply email which will contain important information such as driving directions etc. 

 
 
The event is also posted on the CFWWC Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/353935081749863/ and coastfork.org calendar https://www.coastfork.org/events-calendar/icalrepeat.detail/2018/03/10/1572/20%7C21%7C22%7C8/turtle-flats-bird-count. Please feel free to share this invitation with fellow birders!
 
For questions, contact Mieko Aoki at volunteer@bufordpark.org.
