On Saturday, Feb. 27, the Friends will gather at 9:00 AM to do some general maintenance on nest boxes around the wildlife area. We’ll locate boxes, clean them out, and repair or replace them if needed.
Meet at Ladd Marsh Headquarters (59116 Pierce Rd – Directions below) at 9:00 am for an area assignment, map and supplies. If you have a cordless drill/screw driver, please bring it. Participants will be asked to fill out volunteer forms and will receive a permit to be on the area for the day. When you finish with bird houses, you are welcome to enjoy walking or birding on the area for the rest of the day.
Directions to Ladd Marsh HQ: From La Grande, take the Union Highway (203) to Pierce Rd (B&K Auto Salvage). Turn right (south) on Pierce. Continue for approximately 1 ¼ mile to HQ on the right. From Union, turn left on Pierce Rd and follow above directions. From I-84, take exit 268 (Foothill Rd) then turn east. At the “T” with Pierce Rd, turn left (north). Continue about 1 1/2 mile to HQ on the left.
See you on the marsh!
