East Woodland Road with Linda Hanson & Laurel Salvador
Trip difficulty: Moderate. Approximately two-mile hiking round trip on mostly uneven surfaces. No restrooms, water or benches are available.
Those who are new to Tucson or birding are particularly welcome! We’ll walk along the road first, checking telephone poles and fields for hawks, blackbirds, flycatchers, meadowlarks and more. Time permitting, we’ll continue onto an open grassland trail, looking for falcons, sparrows, woodpeckers, towhees, etc. Take Tanque Verde Road east of Catalina Highway and turn south onto Woodland Road. Continue south until the road bends and turns west. We will meet where the road bends and turns west. Please park along the road, not blocking driveways and please carpool if possible; parking is limited. Sunhat, plenty of water, and walking shoes are highly recommended. We’ll wrap up around 10:00 AM. This walk is designed for those relatively new to birding or the Tucson area, but all are welcome. Limited to 10 participants.
Registration for this trip is free.
