For this Birdathon trip, Birdathoners may choose to go on one or both parts of the trip. The trip will begin at 8 am by walking the trails at the Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge (Nisqually NWR). Afterwards, we will have lunch (please bring) and set forth to carpool to Gray's Harbor National Wildlife Refuge and from there to Ocean Shores on another birding adventure until dusk. The day ends with dinner to recap the day's counts and activities. Participants are welcome to come for the entire day, or for just the Nisqually or Ocean Shores portion. If you choose to do just Ocean Shores, you should plan to be at Nisqually NWR by 11 am for carpooling. When registering, please indicate if you will do the full day or just a portion of the day. Carpooling logistics will be worked out in advance of the trip because vehicles cannot be left at the NWR after dark, when we will be returning.
