Any top tips?

Weekend and holiday 'Handler Talk' in the outdoor, covered pavilion are informal programs showcasing birds out on the glove, to educate, inspire, and answer any questions visitors might have. Saturdays and Sundays: during summer hours (Apr-Oct), at 12:00 noon and 2:00 pm; during winter hours (Nov-Mar), at 1:00 pm.

Wear good walking shoes; the trails are gravel and some are a bit steep. CRC is about 500' above Eugene, in the woods, and always a bit cooler than the city itself.
