Come with us to spot eagles, sandhill cranes, tundra swans, and raptors. We’ll leave campus on Sunday at 12:30 PM to see some of the biggest birds in the world!  Just 45 minutes away, on the Washington side of the Columbia River, you can spot all sorts of birds, including bald eagles and sandhill cranes with a wingspan of 6 feet!  We’ll look for these amazing birds as we hike along the Columbia River in the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge.  Well, of course you’re not going to hike WITH the eagles or these other huge birds, but you’ll see them, flying overhead or in trees.  College Outdoors has binoculars, and spotting scopes, which you can use on this hike. You’ll be back by 5:30 PM- just in time for dinner!
