Join the Bridgerland Audubon Society as we explore fall migration at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge of Box Elder County. Up to a half million ducks and geese concentrate on the refuge units and over 30,000 tundra swans begin to arrive in mid-October and stay through December. We will begin with a driving tour of the 12 mile auto tour loop where a downloadable audio tour is available on the Bear River Refuge website (link below). Walkie talkies will also be provided to point out points of interest. Once this tour is over we will explore the Wildlife Education Center which opens at 10 AM. Afterwards we will conclude with a walking tour of the 1.5 miles of paved and gravel trails that surround the Wildlife Education Center and stretch through the wetland habitat.

We will meet at 8 AM in the parking lot between Caffe Ibis and the Logan fire Station (50E 150N, Logan). Carpooling will be available to drive to the BRMBR located at 2155 W Forest St, Brigham City, UT 84302. We hope to be to the Refuge no later than 9 AM and back to Logan by 1 PM.

September 22-24, Tetons Elk Bugling Trip

Bridgerland Audubon Tetons Elk Bugling Trip

Grand Tetons

Carpool at 3:00 PM Friday 22 September

Grand Teton National Park

The Tetons for Elk Bugling and More. Jack Greene will organize and lead our field trip to witness the Elk Bugling in the scenic Teton Mountains.

The car pool will leave at 3 p.m. Friday afternoon, September 22nd and return Sunday afternoon/evening, September 24th.

Witness the Tetons in their best fall dress where rampaging large ungulates (elk, bison, moose) release their fall passion with grunts, bugling, and a nasty disposition. Fall migrating birds along with winter residents will add to the fun. Some participants choose to camp while others choose to stay in a hotel. You will need to provide your own meals. Expect anything from 40 to 80 degree weather; rain, snow, or sunshine.
