Saturday Nov. 29
8:30 & 9 am
Fort Flagler

At 9 am we'll start the field trip at Portage Bridge Park, Indian Island, the first right after crossing the bridge. There will be stops along Indian Island checking the mud flats for shorebirds and a Mystery Bay stop before heading to Fort Flagler RV campground at the end of Campground Road. We will walk the spit scoping Port Townsend Bay and Kilisut Harbor for wintering ducks, grebes and shorebirds. Be prepared for cold wet weather with gloves, hats, layers of clothing, binoculars, and raingear. Anyone wanting to carpool from Port Townsend should meet at the Park and Ride near Safeway by 8:30 am. I'll meet everyone at the Indian Island Portage Park. Trip Leader: Paula Vanderheul (360-379- 8564 or pvanderheul@gmail.com).

Sunday Dec. 14
9 am - noon
Kah Tai Lagoon Nature Park Work Party

Work Party events will include:

1) Planting - If you plan to help with the planting bring a shovel.  If you have it bring a mattock (aka Pulaski tool), for chopping thru horsetail rush and grass, and a pot or bucket for saving your refill dirt. Careful planting will be more important than number planted.

2) Pulling Scotch Broom - pullers will be provided.

3) Trash pick up - bags provided.

Our white chevy pickup with tools, sign in sheets, water, tea, treats, etc. will be parked near the Benedict Street entrance east/southeast of the little pond. For more information phone 385 0307 or email sikes@olympus.net.
