Title:
Field Trip to Nisqually Forest Loop
Calendar:
Date:
05.18.2019 8:15 am - 1:00 pm

Description

Join WHAS for a return to Billye Frank Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge to check out migrating song birds.  Our breeding songbirds should be back from their long journey to southern and warmer climes in Mexico and South America.  We will get to see a different refuge as the trees will be leafed out and most of the waterfowl will have left for their breeding grounds in Alaska and Canada.  There should be some nesting waterfowl, such as Mallards, Cinnamon Teal, and others.  The weather should be milder than we endured in February.

We will meet at refuge headquarters on Saturday May 18 between 8:15 - 8:30 AM.  We will walk the forest trails and explore for about 3 hours.  Driving distance is 77 miles north from Longview.  We will be encouraging car pooling.  Group size will be limited so sign up early.  To sign up, call John Green (360-430-8569) or This email address is being protected from spambots.
