Date: 4/23/18 12:06 pm From: <jmeredit...> Subject: [COBOL] PLAN for Wednesdays, and 4-25 specifically
This week is the last week of starting at 8 a.m. Next week is a very, VERY early start because of visiting the grouse, and the following week, May 9th we will start the carpooling at 7 in Bend, and adjust for other location starts accordingly. Make note!
This Wednesday, 4-25, we visit water treatment hotspots, starting with Crooked River Wetlands (CRW). This is a great time for shorebirds, waterfowl are in beautiful breeding plumage and we will likely see some passerine migrants. A bonus for the trip, is that Jim VanVlack has offered the use of the new electric cart at CRW for anyone who would like to do the entire trail but not have to walk it. He will demo it for the group and be there to give rides. Thanks to Jim in advance for taking such good care of us!
The schedule also calls for checking Redmond and Hatfield ponds which would be optional depending on how much time is spent at Prineville and recent reports if any are tantalizing.
BEND - 8 a.m. Nancy P's at 1054 Milwaukee. Go to Powell Butte to meet the group in the parking lot at the church. REDMOND - 8:15 at Starbucks Nolan Center near Hwy 126/Rimrock and go to Powell Butte to meet the group. ANYONE ELSE, meet at Powell Butte at about 8:40. Or CRW will be the first stop, so perhaps around 9 a.m.
I will miss yet another Wednesday. Enjoy, and 1 will look forward to being with the group on May 2nd.
