Orient Land Trust has an abundant bird population arriving this month! For those of you who get up early, you may have heard the cacophony of bird song which occurs every year starting in late May. If you've seen the photos at the welcome center and have wondered just how and where they were taken, now is your chance to explore the property with photographer and birdwatcher, Dr. Daniel Flemming. Dan will be leading several workshops at the hot springs and Everson Ranch. Be prepared for short hikes with good walking shoes, water bottle, sunblock and hat. Bring binoculars or cameras with telephoto lens. The workshops are offered at no charge and you can sign up at the Welcome Center.
