Birding the Dungeness

347Join us for a birding field trip to Dungeness on Wednesday, August 26. Naturalist and birder extraordinaire Ken Wilson will lead our trip to Dungeness, an area with a rich diversity of birds,some of which are scarce in the Port Townsend area.

This is a time of fall migration for numerous species of shorebirds. Bring clothing layers to accommodate our unpredictable weather — which might include cold sea breezes, fog, rain, glaring sun, or all of the above. Also bring lunch, beverage, binoculars, and perhaps a bird field guide.

Meet at 8:00 am at the Park and Ride next to Safeway.

Another possibility for anyone living a number of miles out of town is to email Ken ( for an alternative meeting up location. We’ll plan on being back in Port Townsend by 1:00 or 2:00 pm.
