NCAS at the Farmer’s Market
September 16 at 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Come Visit NCAS at the Bellingham Farmer’s Market on Saturday, September 16
With the help of many volunteers, NCAS has been tabling at the Bellingham Farmer’s Market on the third Saturday of the month from April through August. September will be our last month of tabling in 2017. We have found the booth to be an engaging way to dialogue with community members and out of town visitors about birds. People stop by to ask about the nest boxes we have available, or the display that shows the impact of climate change on our four climate ambassadors- bald eagle, rufous hummingbird, trumpeter swan, and tree swallow. People have questions about birds they have seen, or want to know what they can do to attract birds to their backyard. We have offered every visitor to our booth a short handout on our four climate ambassadors, with information on what all of us can do to help reduce the impact of climate change.
A special thanks to the members of the Birds and Climate Change Work Group for designing the booth, and to all the volunteers who shared their time and passion for birds while staffing the booth, including:
Mary Ann Percy, Margarette Grant, Marj Leone, Darrel Weiss, Mary Jo Aegerter, Steven Harper, Canaan Cowles, Deborah Kaye, Bob Butterfield, Chris Brewer, Michael Sennett, Mary Rawlins, Kirsten Anderson, John Aspnes, Jane Aspnes, Jacqueline Anderson, Doug Brown, Richard Carpenter, Steve Irving, Owen Bamford, Pam Borso and Sue Parrott.
