The Snake River "Birds of Prey" National Conservation Area is located just under 30 bird miles southwest of Boise. It is a spectacular canyon that was created by the Great Bonneville flood. Our guides focus on the Natural history, Geology & Bird watching. The guides are very informative and have been studying and working the "Birds of Prey" area for many years. Please remember to bring along your binoculars, cameras and a tape recorder if you choose. Good bird watching times are April 1st to July 10th and history trips from June through October each year.
We have a special interest in the Snake River "Birds of Prey" National Conservation Area and offer a wide variety of tours. We explain through our tours why this unique area has become so popular for the nesting raptors. On our field trips you will get a chance to view many species of "Birds of Prey." Our expert guides will help you identify the many types of raptors, their nests and the different areas where they might be found. This boat trip is much like a Tom Sawyer float, this is not a white water float trip, but a very calm ride in large boats with comfortable seats.
Feel free to bring along enough personal gear to make your day comfortable. Please bring it in a day-pack. Some suggestions of articles to bring are: rain gear, sun glasses, binoculars, shoes that you don't mind getting wet and are comfortable for hiking, a hat to shade the eyes while spotting birds' nests, suntan lotion, and wear comfortable clothing, field clothing please.
