Field Trip Saturday September 23rd

BIRDING THE GREAT RIVER BEND

Saturday, September 23, 2017 8:00 am to about 4:00 pm

Meet at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot at Whitman College

Join Mike & MerryLynn Denny to explore the birds of the Columbia River from
the Walla Walla River Delta through Wallula Gap to McNary Dam. Stops along
the way include Warehouse Beach and Hat Rock State Park. We will look
specifically for waterfowl (which will be back in breeding plumage) and migrating
passerines.

Come prepared for the weather and bring water, snacks, lunch, binoculars and a
friend or two. Wear your walking shoes as we will likely walk a couple of miles in
all. We will carpool. You do not have to be a member of Blue Mountain Audubon
Society to attend.

If you have a copy of “Where the Great River Bends” or can borrow a copy, it
would be helpful to read about the fascinating geography and history in the Wallula
Gap where the ice-age floods rushed through. Mike, along with Bob Carson and
others, co-authored this most interesting and informative book.

If you have any questions about the field trip, contact Mike and MerryLynn at
m.denny@charter.net or 509-529-0080.
