Klamath Falls Wildlife Safari             Monday, January 16-18    $750  ($600)

The Lower Klamath NWR safari in 2017 was amazing.  While many people travel to this refuge for the wintering bald eagles, we not only encountered them, but river otters, mink, northern harriers, rough-legged hawks, pheasants, tundra swans, thousands of geese and ducks, coyotes, and great horned owls. We found and photographed the family of river otters (5) everyday doing the usual river otter stuff (like eating fish, playing, etc) as well as two encounters with rare mink - an animal I'm not sure I've ever seen before in the west.  A blast of cold arctic air and a snowstorm days before gave us the perfect habitat to encounters these critters throughout the refuge.


We meet in Klamath Falls, OR the night before the safari begins, January 15th. In 2014 the weather was mild, but in 2017 it was bitter cold, so you need to watch the weather reports and pack accordingly.  I have three spaces in my truck for those wanting to car pool, and we usually leave early enough to spend a few hours in the Sacramento NWR on the way north.
