Field Trip: Skagit and Whatcom Counties
Leaders: BHAS Travel Committee
Black Hills Audubon’s newest committee, the Travel Committee, invites you to join them in a birding tour of Skagit County, famous for its winter birding, during Martin Luther King weekend. Bald Eagles congregate to feed on area fish, Snow Geese and Trumpeter and Arctic Swans carpet the open fields like snow, and ducks of all kinds spend the winter here. Friday’s birding sites will include Mount Vernon, Fir Island, West 90, and Chuckanut Drive, and the group will stay at the Bellingham Lodge (101 N. Samish Way). On Saturday, the group will explore the Blaine area and Cherry Point, stay in Semi Ah Moo Saturday night, and return home to Thurston County on Sunday. There is a limit of 24 for this trip. Participants will pay their own lodging costs and pitch in for an estimated $30 per car carpooling costs. The group leaves Martin Way Park and Ride at 7 a.m. on Friday and returns at around 6 p.m. on Sunday. To sign up for the trip, contact email@example.com.
