Birdwatch at Circle Creek

March 30, 2018

When: Wednesday, June 13, 7 to 9 am
Where: Circle Creek Habitat Reserve, Seaside
Led by: Tammi Lesh


Join naturalist Tammi Lesh for an early-morning birdwatching walk at Circle Creek Conservation Center. NCLC acquired this 364-acre property in 2004; at the time, it was the Conservancy’s largest acquisition. Habitats here range from creek and river corridors to shrub-scrub and sedge-dominated wetlands and forest wetlands dominated by Sitka spruce. As a result, we may see a wide variety of birds, ranging from songbirds to bald eagles and other raptors. With her keen eye and ear, Tammi will help you spot birds and identify and better understand the trees and other plants and animals that characterize this habitat reserve. Everyone is welcome, from first-timers to experienced birdwatchers.

TAMMI LESH grew up in Tillamook County and lives on a farm near Garibaldi with her husband and daughter. She has a background in wildlife habitat management and has worked for the U.S. Forest Service, Idaho Fish and Game, Arizona Game and Fish Department, Northern Arizona University, and most recently The Nature Conservancy as a land steward in central Oregon and in Clatsop County. She has served on the NCLC board since 2007.
