Sunday, 14 January, 9 am to noon:

Park at the KTLNP parking lot. Look for the white pickup north of the picnic shelter. We will be spreading compost, pulling Scot’s Broom and picking up trash. Bring a rake if you have one.

The nearest parking is at the Chase Bank parking lot. Walk the paved trail or loop trail to the Benedict Street trail where you will find the white pickup truck. We will be pulling Scot’s Broom, or Spurge Laurel and Holly in the woodland, or picking up trash. If you want to pull Spurge Laurel and Holly seedlings, a pair of needlenose or other small pliers is very helpful.

Refreshments, Scot’s Broom pullers, garbage grabbers & garbage bags provided. For information: email or call 360-385-0307.



Some Birding Field Trip Leaders have agreed to lead trips around the area as part of their normal birding activities and would enjoy company without spending energy on announcing and coordinating trips. If you are interested, check our home page for the latest offerings. These will be great opportunities for less experienced birders to improve their skills and everyone to learn about new locations.

Please bring binoculars and scopes (if you have any) and wear appropriate footwear and clothing. Heavy rain will cancel most trips but light rain will not; check with the leader when in doubt. Do not bring pets.

Cautionary Note – All persons participating in field trips assume all risks of whatsoever nature or kind and neither AAS nor the trip leaders accepts any responsibility for the actions of any persons who freely participate.

Note: A short description of birds seen should be posted under "Sightings" on this website the following day (see link on banner above).
