Raptor Center/Amazon Headwaters

Saturday, March 5, 2011
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 2 miles, 438 ft (Easy)

We started up the Amazon Headwaters Trail at 12:15 p.m. in light rain and with the soothing sounds of flowing water. At 1:00 we joined other visitors at the Raptor Center to listen to Dan Gleason and two handlers share their knowledge about the peregrine falcon and the spotted owl. Later we had our first glimpse of Celilo, the eagle that one of our members, Nola Nelson, named. Kristen Simmons pointed out cages that some members of her Boy Scout troop built. On our hike back to the cars, we spotted two budding trilliums. It was a treat to introduce the Amazon Headwaters Trail to the three nonmembers.

Members: Janet Jacobsen, Nola Nelson. Nonmembers: Kristen Simmons, Michelle Friedner, Jeanne Palzinski.
