Duckabush Outing

duckabush-1On October 13, 2016, the Natural History Society joined for an autumn hike on the Jefferson Land Trust property along the Duckabush River. It was an easy hike over uneven terrain.

The Duckabush River provides spawning and rearing habitat for trout and salmon of several species. Many large and small mammals and birds inhabit this rich forest, such as elk, beaver, owls, dippers, ducks, and woodpeckers.

duckabush-2We suggested: hiking shoes, dressing in layers, a field guide to plants or birds,  binoculars, food, and water. There was no limit to the size of this group.

An Outing to the Duckabush River

IMG_4692On October 24, 2015, the Natural History Society members Dave Rugh and Pat Rothman led an outing to explore two Jefferson Land Trust properties: the  Duckabush Oxbow Preserve and the Duckabush Wetlands Preserve.

It was an easy walk over uneven terrain. The Duckabush River provides spawning and rearing habitat for trout and salmon, and many animals and birds inhabit the area. This is an excellent place to look for signs of elk, bear, beaver, owls, woodpeckers, and ducks.

We brought cameras, binoculars, our favorite field guides, lunch, and water. Pat at jltnatural@saveland.org was the contact for details.
