First Day Hike - Bird Watching on the Grassland Trail

Join Columbia Audubon Society members to look for sparrows, raptors, and other flora and fauna of interest while walking through the mixed grassland, shrub and forest-edge habitats of the 2-mile Grassland Trail (moderate).

*Those who wish to do so may linger near the parking lot from 4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. to watch and listen for a last pulse of daytime bird activity and possibly evening birds like owls. Watch the sun set over the sea of grass around 4:47 pm.

This activity is limited to those ages 8 and up. No dogs please. The trail is not stroller accessible.
