Migratory Bird Day Saturday At The Dalles Dam Visitor Center

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center are partnering to put on Migratory Bird Day on Saturday at The Dalles Dam Visitor Center.  There will be a high-tech scavenger hunt, bird bingo, kids crafts, and a presentation at 10 a.m. from the Discovery Center featuring an American Kestrel.  The Dalles Lock and Dam park ranger Amber Tilton says this year’s theme for the event is “Protect birds:  Be the solution to plastic pollution.”  The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Dalles Dam Visitor Center.  To get there take Interstate 84 exit 87 and travel east on Bret Clodfelter Way.  Visitors are encouraged to bring their own scopes, binoculars, GPS units, and cameras.
