Frank Lospolluto, expert bird ecologist, will lead us through the forest edge, wet meadows and riparian habitat known as Vesper Meadow Restorative Preserve. Located up Indian Memorial Road, we might see vesper sparrows, hawks, sandhill cranes, and possibly owls.
The Klamath Bird Observatory is partnering with the Vesper Meadow Restoration Project in this unique walk and talk. Vesper Meadow is a place-based restoration project, as well as outpost for community science and art programs. It is the site where KBO is collecting information on the endangered vesper sparrow.
