Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve Bird Walk
December 16 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am
Jackson Bottom’s 635 acres of open waters, wetland areas, upland forests and meadow provide habitat for more than 130 bird species that reside and migrate through our area annually. Join naturalist and educator Elaine Murphy on a free educational walk around Jackson Bottoms to look for Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Tundra Swans, Northern Pintails and many other bird species! Also watch for river otter, beaver, deer as well as frogs, snakes and salamanders. It is truly a testament to the vision and persistence of the City of Hillsboro and others who continue to support and restore this wonderful area!
