Save the Date! “Up to the Siskiyou Crest (and Back)”: A History-and-Birding Auto Tour

July 2, 8:30 AM – 5 pm

Whether you’re a newcomer to the region or an old-timer, participate in a fun- and information-filled auto tour led by a renowned birder and KBO board president Shannon Rio and historian/author Jeff LaLande.

The car-pool route will include various “History Stops” (but relatively little actual walking) at essential places such as Railroad Tunnel #13, the old Siskiyou Pass, Grouse Gap shelter (just past Mt. Ashland), the 1850s-1860s “Mountain House” stage stop, the 1846 Applegate Trail, the Hill-Dunn cemetery, and other spots – returning the “back way” (through the upper-most Bear Creek Valley) to Ashland by mid-afternoon.

Along the Siskiyou Crest, we’ll hike a short stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail near Mt. Ashland. Wildflowers – lupine, gilia, Oregon sunshine, corn lily, and many species may be in profusion, and we will identify and enjoy as many of those as we can.

Various raptors should be spotted, as well as many other birds – ranging from migrant Green-tailed Towhee, along the short stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail, to Bullock’s Orioles and Acorn Woodpeckers down at Emigrant Lake’s historic cemetery.

Registration will open in early June.


A place to Visit: White City Lagoon

The Kirtland Ponds in White City have become more accessible to birders. Thanks to Watchable Wildlife Foundation and Rogue River Watershed Council. There is now parking and a specific spot for birders to see the unique birds attracted to these ponds. Make sure to take a trip out there and eBird your sightings.

Located about 4 miles off I-5, exit 35 (Blackwell Rd). Bear right onto Kirtland Rd (Hwy 140 East/Hwy 62), left at White City Lagoons sign, and left to public parking.
