321 Birds & burns
Join this field trip for an interpretive journey through one of the Eastern Sierra's most under-appreciated ecosystems and an introduction to local forest ecology, including the critical role of fire and the keystone roles of forest-dwelling woodpeckers. Wandering through blackened columns left by lightning-caused fires, we'll discover a new world of wildflowers, sprouting shrubs, and once-proud pines fast becoming homes for Black-backed and Hairy woodpeckers and a whole suite of other cavity-dwellers. Expect several moderate meanders for a total of approximately three miles. (est. driving miles: 50; hiking difficulty: moderate to strenuous)
