Witness the Tetons in their best fall dress where rampaging large ungulates (elk, bison, moose, etc.), release their fall passion with grunts, bugles, and a nasty disposition. Fall migrating birds along with winter residents will add to the fun. Several hikes combined with auto tours will be included, and a visit to the Teton Science School Murie Museum. RSVP by contacting Jack Greene: 435-764-4815 or

Signed waivers required for all participants. Complete form, print results and bring printed waiver to meeting point.

We will be camping at Gros Ventre campground, so bring your own food & gear, or partner with someone who has gear to share. Donate whatever is fair to the driver (unless you’re driving!).

May 18, Logan River Icon Trail


Join Bridgerland Audubon and Common Ground along the Logan River Icon Trail.


Notice of a new activity in collaboration with Common Ground Outdoor Adventures!

UPDATE: Due to high water, Trapper Park has been closed until further notice. Please meet at Rendezvous Park Our backup can be the paved nature trail that cuts into the golf course.

We will have a birding event at the Logan River Icon Trail departing from Trapper Park on Thursday, May 18th at 5 PM! Folks from Common Ground Outdoor Adventures will be along for this educational and pleasurable walk. The Icon Trail offers some of the best birding (species diversity) in the valley and I am confident we will yield a 50-species list and possibly more! We will depart from Trapper Park at 5 PM and walk along the paved Icon trail to the IFIT building and back (~2 miles). Upon returning to Trapper Park, the Common Ground folks will depart and whoever is still interested will continue birding until twilight passes.

This is an as-you-please event so feel free to leave as you please and track down our group and join in when you get time.
It is spring time so who knows what species will be about, but I am predicting we should get all of our spring migrants and who knows what else!
Please sign up on our Google doc so I can have an idea of what to expect for participation! Drop your email in the google doc for updates on field trips!
Have a birdie day!
