Spring Migration at Fort Flagler

Meet at the sewage pond parking lot at 9 am to walk around the pond and down to the beach looking for shorebirds and waterfowl, then drive to the RV camping area to walk the Spit between Kilisut Harbor and Port Townsend Bay. Those interested in carpooling from Port Townsend should meet at the Haines Place Park & Ride near Safeway by 8:30 am. I'll meet everyone at the sewage pond parking lot. Upon entering Fort Flagler, drive to the four way stop signs. Turn right following the short road to the parking lot. Bring your binoculars, spotting scope, fand ield guides. Dress in warm layers, hats, gloves, and hiking boots for comfort. Paula Vanderheul, Trip Leader: 360-379-8564 or A Discover Pass is required.

Fort Flagler Area

To carpool, meet at Haines Place Park & Ride at 7:30 am. If not carpooling, meet us at Fort Flagler at the parking lot at the campground near the spit where the Brants hang out at about 8:00 am. There are other nearby trails to explore as well. Plan on at least 2 to 3 hours and bring raingear, snacks, water and binoculars. I don't have a scope so if someone wants to bring one, that would be welcome. A group no larger than six people would be ideal. Contact Trip Leader Bev McNeil for questions at 360-385-9730.

Kah Tai Workparty

We will be removing invasive species and picking up trash, but you get to choose: You can pull Scots Broom, English Holly or that ever-popular aromatic Spurge Laurel or you can help with the exciting trash pickup! Park in the Chase Bank parking lot and look for the white pickup near the closest Audubon (green wooden) bench to the bank. We will provide Scot's Broom pullers and we have five trash grabbers. Please bring work gloves & trash grabbers if you have them. Weed wrenches and refreshments (tea and snacks) will be provided. Information - call 360-385-0307 or email
