Amazon Headwaters/Raptor Center

April 26, 2009

Sunday morning at 10:00, eight adults and four kids walked up the Amazon Headwaters Trail to the Raptor Center for their incredible Earth Day Celebration. The display of flowers on the trail included calypso, fawn lilies, dogwood, camas, and trillium. Thanks to a discussion with U of O researchers a few days earlier, I was able to point out the two types of trillium and explain why the flower turned pink. Some of the group opted to leave the Center on their own timetable while five of us agreed to start down the trail at 12:00. We enjoyed the close up views of five birds with their handlers and a tour of the clinic where we met dedicated volunteers including the veterinarian. There were only rave reviews for the Raptor Center and the hike. On her third trip, Judy Ness had two of us sign her membership application.

Hikers were members Jane Allen, Drew Babb-Hackett, Madison Babb-Hackett, Jane Hackett, Janet Jacobsen (leader), Sue Meyers, Moshe Rapaport and Ruth Romoser; and nonmembers Judy Ness, Connie Pierce, Dante Richey and Devon Richey.
