Classes Held at RE Sources for Sustainable Communities in Bellingham
If you have wondered what all those birds are when you look out on the Salish Sea, here’s your chance to find out! North Cascades Audubon Society, in collaboration with the Cherry Point Aquatic Reserve Citizenship Committee and RE Sources, will again be offering classes on marine bird identification. We will go over the key physical features of more than 30 species, their behavior, and other interesting facts about their life histories. We have been conducting surveys of marine birds for several years as an offshoot of earlier Salish Sea-wide surveys (Marine Ecosystem Analysis 1978-1979 and the WWU/John Bower Marine Bird Census 2003-2005). These classes are meant to increase awareness of these birds and the reasons we have been monitoring them. Previous class participants are welcome to attend.
