Join Brian Baxter of Silver Cloud Associates Outdoor Educational Programs on Oct. 13, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for an excursion into the beautiful and diverse Owen Sowerwine riparian wetlands. Come along with fellow outdoor enthusiasts as we meander along, listening and scoping for resident and migrating birds of prey, waterfowl, woodpeckers and songbirds. We’ll assume a slow pace, looking for and studying vegetation, and the tracks and sign of diverse wildlife including the weasel family, and members of the canid and felid families. Along the way we will also scout for amphibians, reptiles, and turtles. Round trip hike of less than 2.5 miles, and of moderate slope. The group will meet at 9 a.m. at the Montessori School located at 349 Willow Glen Drive, Kalispell.
