Special Event through Black Hills Audubon Society:
Bird the three ecosystems of the preserve (prairie
oak savannah, Garry Oak riparian forest, and
second growth Douglas Fir edge) before Prairie
Appreciation Day activities begin. Bring binoculars. The walk should
be around two miles along a gravel road. Dress for the weather.
Enter the preserve through the gate; you will be
directed to parking. Meet at 7:30 a.m. at the canopy
next to the first intersection of the preserve roads
(the Welcome Station). Finish by 9:30 a.m. and leave
the event directly (to minimize inrush conflicts), or
stay to enjoy Prairie Appreciation Day.
Contact Bob Wadsworth (360) 561-3317) if you have questions (sign-up not necessary). The Glacial Heritage Preserve is on the Mima-Gate Road, south of Littlerock. See map on the Directions Page.
