Corvids are known as the bird brains of the avian world. If you've spent any time watching ravens, crows, and jays you know that's true and you probably have a story to tell. Besides being smart, these birds are among the most viewable of wildlife. But their relationship with people and other wildlife can get complicated. Restoring balanced populations, relationships and critical habitats are important goals of Siuslaw National Forest. Learn about some of the basics of corvid biology and behavior and what you can do to help both corvids and threatened species from speaker Vickie Penwell, a U.S. Forest Service ranger.

The event is free, but a Northwest Forest Pass, Oregon Coast Passport, federal recreation pass, or $5 day-use fee is required within the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area and at some trailheads and day use sites. For more information on these events, contact the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center at 541-547-3289.
