Birding and Beaches in Port Townsend

Join the Natural History Society on Thursday, May 17, for a two-part day of birds and beaches at North Beach, first experiencing songbirds and then exploring the intertidal zone during a minus tide. You may  choose to join one part or both!

We’ll meet at 9:00 am at Port Townsend’s North Beach parking lot.

Naturalist extraordinaire Ken Wilson will lead an enjoyable two-hour  saunter in North Beach neighborhood and adjacent Chinese Gardens
Lagoon (Fort Worden) to closely observe and interpret the spring  activity of our common songbirds as they establish their breeding  territories. He will also will teach us some easy ways to identify  birds by their songs.

At 11:00 am, beach naturalists Nan Evans and  Wendy Feltham will lead a two-hour search for marine invertebrates. We  hope to find nudibranchs, crabs, anemones, and chitons.

Bring your cameras, binoculars, field guides, appropriate footwear and  clothing, and your lunch.  Please contact Eileen at  JLTnatural@saveland.org to RSVP and with any questions.
