At the September Audubon meeting, Sherry Ritter, Chairperson of the “Bitterroot River Important Bird Area” (IBA) Committee, will give a presentation about habitat management for birds highlighting the use of “Exclosures” at the Teller Wildlife Refuge. Following her talk, we will drive to the 4.5 acre riparian exclosure near Gird Creek (on the Teller) that was erected in 2007 to see how the shrubs have recovered without deer browsing.
The Bitterroot Audubon Chapter meeting will be Monday, September 19th at the Teller Wildlife Refuge at 7:00 P.M. Gather at the Education Room in the Slack Barn for Sherry’s presentation but dress appropriately for the weather since we will be outside for a period of time. The Refuge is located north of Corvallis. Take the Eastside Highway from Corvallis to Quast Lane, Turn West onto Quast and then turn south on Chaffin Lane.
