Meet forward on main passenger deck for the 9:30 am sailing from Port Townsend. Dress for weather, wear comfortable walking shoes, bring your optics, and something to eat/drink. I will carry a spotting scope. We will look for birds during the to and from crossings. On Whidbey Island we will go over the hill through the woods to the shore of Crockett Lagoon. We will walk about 1.5 miles. Our return is on a circular route to the beach and the ferry terminal. We will plan to catch the 1:15 pm sailing from Coupeville (aka. Keystone). RSVP providing a phone number and/or email address in case the trip needs to be cancelled due to weather or ferry problems. Leader Ron Sikes, phone 360-385-0307 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

In addition to removing invasive species and picking up garbage, we hope to plant native species and perhaps assist with irrigation layout. Park near the bathrooms across from Henery Hardware. Look for the white pickup between the little pond and the Benedict Street entrance opposite Henery Garden Center. Bring shovels if you want to plant, work gloves & trash grabbers if you have them (we have 5). Weed wrenches and refreshments provided. Information - call 360-385-0307 or email email@example.com.
