Visit our Programs

Spider workshop October 2008

Our programs are open to anyone who wants to participate. You don't have to be a member of Audubon or our local chapter to join the fun. But after you have come to  several of our programs, we think you'll want to join and support us. :-)


Here is your chance to observe the Vaux's Swift in Rainier Ore.

WHAS is actively monitoring the population of Vaux's Swifts by counting the birds as they enter their regular stopping places during the northbound migration in May and the southbound migration in September. To volunteer as an observer, or just to witness the spectacle when roosting numbers are at their peak at Carpet One in Rainier, Oregon, call Darrel Whipple (503-556-9838) or join any Saturday observation in September starting a half-hour before sunset on the steps of Rainier City Hall.

Program: Birding Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Naturalist and photographer Dan Streiffert will bring his program of bird photographs and descriptions of a recent trip to the Artic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to Kelso on October 23, 2018 at 7 pm at the Kelso Senior Center.  Most of us will never get to visit this vast and remote area, often called the "Serengeti of the north."  Join us for this intimate view.

Streiffert is a retired engineer, nature photographer and member of the Washington State Audubon Conservation Committee.

The program is free and open to the public.
