October Presentation: A Birding Trip to The Dust Bowl
Thursday October 15th 7:00 PM Room 157 - Olin Hall - Whitman College Campus



In April of 2012 Mike and MerryLynn Denny drove to Bartlesville, Oklahoma in hopes of finding a "LIFER" - a bird they have never seen. The Henslow's Sparrow did not cooperate but many other birds did. Final destination was The Nature Conservancy Tallgrass Prairie Preserve - a very different world from Walla Walla WA!

Join the Dennys on a virtual natural history tour through the great American Dust Bowl - with many stops along the way. Birds, animals, plants, scenery, this trip will have it all.




Field Trip: Fall Birding at Bennington Lake Saturday October 17th 9:00 AM-11:00AM


Join Judy and Paul Treman and Ginger and Rodger Shoemake as we check for birds on Bennington Lake and then take a leisurely walk up the canal and back (a total distance of about a mile). We will be looking for a wide variety of birds, including late summer migrants, recently arrived winter birds, raptors and waterfowl. As always, we will be on the lookout for the "surprise" uncommon or rare bird that is waiting to be discovered.

This is an excellent opportunity to introduce a friend or two to the joy of birding. Bring your binoculars and meet at the Bennington Lake parking lot near the restrooms. You do not have to be a member of Blue Mountain Audubon to attend. If you have questions contact the Tremans at 527-0722 or E-mail Paul and Judy..


Come join us as we walk around Bennington Lake on Tuesday mornings. It's fun to see what birds are present at different times of the year and to enjoy the changes of the seasons at the lake. The walks last 2-3 hours. We do not walk in inclement weather.

The start time for the walks will change with the seasons. For more information E-mail Ginger Shoemake
