Jackson Bottom has always been a special place, used by Native peoples, early settlers, and great numbers of waterfowl. Located minutes south of downtown Hillsboro, the 635 acres of Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve are a quiet sanctuary for both people and wildlife. More than 211 species of birds are sighted annually at Jackson Bottom, including bald eagles, Great Blue Herons, and thousands of Tundra Swans and Northern Pintails, making Jackson Bottom a haven for bird watchers. The Preserve is home to deer, otters, beavers and thousands of other species.We will walk approximately 3 to 3.5 miles on the many trails of this Wetlands Preserve, some of it overlooking the Tualatin River. Either during or after the walk, we will visit the Education Center, which has tons of information on local fauna and flora and includes an intact bald eagle nest believed to be the only intact nest of its kind on display in the United States. Youll be able to compare it to the hummingbirds nest also on display. Everything is free of charge, although a $2-per-person donation is recommended.In February, there may be some water on the trails, so dress appropriately. We will stop at one of the excellent restaurants on the way home, but bring a snack and water for the walk.For more information about this hike please contact Steve or Micky Solcz at 503-367-8483 or steve.solcz@gmail.com.Senior Healthy Hikers asks that participants be 50 or older.
