Nature Mapping Report for September 17, 2017: Jackson Hole Float Trips

It’s getting easier and easier to tell that the 2017 season is winding down, especially during the brisk morning hours when it feels much more like Fall than Summer! Regardless of the cooler weather, and the fact that we started out the morning at a chilly 28ºF, we had another wonderful Jackson Hole float trip this week. Through the fog, we were able to make out a whopping 107 Canada Geese and eight Bald Eagles. Five Spotted Sandpipers were wading on the shore and one Least Chipmunk ran scurrying through the brush. If you can’t come on the last few remaining float trips of this year, be sure to plan on joining us in 2018, or join us for a trip this winter!
