Driving Directions to Seufert Park at The Dalles Dam
Winter is all about survival for wildlife and every animal needs the necessary calories to make it to the warmer months. That’s why it is important to maintain a distance of 300 yards when bird watching or 100 yards in a vehicle. You should also leash pets, which can easily scare wildlife.
Give each other space too. About six feet to be exact. Trails can become congested and our favorite outdoor places crowded, so bring masks and hand sanitizer.
