BIGFORK — Join Flathead Audubon for several upcoming field trips. Every Thursday in May you can enjoy a stroll with Anne Morley on the Swan River Nature Trail. Meet Anne at 10 a.m. in Bigfork by the bench between the Playhouse and Showthyme Restaurant. It is a fun morning adventure filled with native plant information and many opportunities to identify birds. Bring binoculars, appropriate clothing and walking shoes. For more information contact Anne at 406-886-2242.
Flathead Audubon will offer another opportunity to view spring bird arrivals in the Smith Lake area on Saturday, May 18, from 8 a.m. until noon. Join us for a spring morning of birding west of Kalispell. The group will drive the Smith Lake Road looking for recently arrived sparrows, orioles, warblers and other breeding migrants. They will proceed to Smith Lake to look for waterfowl and other wetland species. There should be a good diversity of habitats and birds. This is primarily a driving trip with several stops to get out and bird. Bring binoculars and scopes and appropriate weather gear. For details and to sign up, contact Cory Davis at 406-471-3314 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. This trip is limited to 20 participants, is free and open to the public.
