Field Trip - South Whatcom County WLT Lands

Trip Leader: Bob Myhr

Registration Required: Contact Bob at: or 360-933-4352.

The group will meet at Fairhaven Park parking lot to carpool to south Lake Whatcom, Samish headwaters, Saxon Road, and other Whatcom Land Trust areas. A Washington Ornithological Society field trip last year found 48 species at these sites. Expect to find woodpeckers, swallows, grosbeaks, warblers and raptors. Please prepare for the weather and bring a snack, and please be aware of  beginning and ending time. Space will be limited, so be sure to register soon.

Our field trips are free and open to anyone who is interested. Bring your friends!

  • Beginning birders are very welcome.

  • Carpooling is encouraged and even required for some sites with limited parking.

  • Preregistration is often required to limit numbers and reduce disturbance.

  • Dress for the weather, in layers, and wear waterproof clothing and footgear as needed.

  • Severe weather may cancel a trip; contact your leader if concerned or if you cancel.

  • Bring binoculars, scope, field guide or necessary parking passes if you have them.
