General Membership Meeting with Glen “Alex” Alexander
The Diking of the Delta
The lower Skagit Valley is an amazing and popular place for birding. That’s partly because of natural features and partly because of how it was changed by human development. Glen “Alex” Alexander will tell the amazing story of the diking of the Skagit Valley. You may love the magic of the Skagit Valley or you may long to see the way it was, but you will never look at those dikes the same after this presentation.
Glen “Alex” Alexander grew up in Wisconsin on the shore of Lake Michigan. Playing in the woods and on the beach, he developed an interest in nature from his mother, a naturalist. Alex came to Bellingham in 1972 for a temporary internship but, like so many before and since, ended up staying. Recently retired after 27 years as Education Coordinator at Padilla Bay Reserve, he now spends his time working in his forested yard. He is also a citizen scientist and loves hiking and canoeing. Alex has two degrees from Western Washington University: Bachelor of Arts in Education and Master of Education in Environmental Education.
