Nehalem’s Alder Creek Farm is offering the chance to learn about predators and their habitats during a guided meadow walk this Saturday, March 30.
Starting at 10 am, Nehalem Bay State Park Ranger Mariah Dawson will lead the walk through the meadows, marshland and creekside of Alder Creek Farm and Natural Area to learn more about what animals might be nearby. Dawson will focus on area predators, where they roam, other birds and animals who share their habitat, and how to recognize the signs — droppings, footprints and more — of predator presence.
The tour, which is free and open to all, is part of the Explore Nature Series and is offered in partnership with the Lower Nehalem Community Trust and Nehalem Bay State Park.
The walk is suitable for all ages and children are welcome. Participants should dress for the weather and wear waterproof shoes.

Alder Creek Farm is located at 35955 Underhill Lane in Nehalem.
