Join wildlife biologist Heather Murphy for a winter ecology snowshoe tour of the White River. Heather will discuss this special area’s importance to forests, birds, mammals, salmon and water resources. Stops on the tour will highlight conifer diversity, animal tracks, conservation projects and the American Indian and historical use of the land. We’ll have a chance to warm up at Tall Timber Ranch Lodge halfway through the day. This trip offers bilingual leadership with Elisa Lopez from Team Naturaleza and Hillary Clark from the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust.
Snowshoers should be able to walk for 4 hours on snowshoes in winter weather over difficult terrain. Please bring snowshoes and winter boots (ski poles may be helpful), layers of outerwear, safety gear (first aid, bright colors, matches/paper, communication devices, duct tape, etc), hat (winter hat and sun hat), gloves, sunglasses, sunscreen, cloth handkerchief, snacks, water and a day pack. Some loaner snowshoes may be available. Binoculars and field guides would be very helpful. No dogs, please.
Participants will have the opportunity to eat lunch at Tall Timber Ranch's Lodge ($9) or bring their own sack lunch. Hot drinks will be available for a small donation through Tall Timber Ranch. Please let Hillary know when you sign up for the trip whether you will be planning to buy lunch at Tall Timber or bring your own.
