Bird Walk at Silver Saddle Ranch

When:  Saturday, February 16, 9:00a.m.
Where:  Meet at the Red House at Silver Saddle Ranch

Activity Level:  Easy

Come join us at Silver Saddle Ranch to explore the world of birds!
Beginners are welcome.

We will bird the sagebrush habitat and the riparian area along the river and Mexican Ditch, looking for owls, hawks, and passerines. We may find ducks such as goldeneyes and mergansers in the river. If we’re lucky, we may be treated to some birds that come down from the Pine Nut Mountains, such as Pinyon Jays.

Remember to dress in layers and bring water, a snack, good shoes, and binoculars or a scope if you have it.

Please contact Emma Rosen directly to reserve your space.

Silver Saddle Ranch 2018 Holiday Party and Open House

Saturday, December 8th, 9am-2pm.

Please join us for our annual Silver Saddle Ranch Holiday Party with good food, drinks, and friends.

A community Open House to learn more about Silver Saddle Ranch, view inside the Red House and other ranch buildings, see Santa, meet board members, become a volunteer and/or member. Have some winter fun hiking, birding, biking, or riding at the ranch. Bring the kids as Santa will make a showing as well. Everyone is welcome!

If you have not come out to meet us before, be sure to come by and check out the ranch. The Silver Saddle Ranch (SSR) is a 703 acre working ranch located between the Pine Nut Mountains to the east and Prison Hill to the west.The Ranch and surrounding landscape is dominated by agricultural fields, sagebrush, and wetland and riparian habitats.

All our “old” friends are encouraged to come by, and why not bring someone new that has never been to the ranch before?

The SSR is subject to a perpetual conservation easement to protect, preserve, and enhance the conservation values of the lands.

This is one of our two annual Silver Saddle Ranch Fund Raisers and we appreciate any donation you can give. Better yet, become a member and receive a SSR mug, email updates on activities for 2019, and what we are doing to improve the facility and your experience at Silver Saddle Ranch.
