Pearrygin Lake Campout and Field Trips June 1-4Steven Harper, SecretaryOur tenth annual NCAS Campout will be held at Pearrygin Lake State Park group camp Thursday afternoon, June 1 – Sunday morning, June 4 with great people, great weather and of course great birding. There is lots of room for people with tents. Vans or pickup toppers are allowed in the parking area. RVs and trailers are not allowed. Picnic tables and grates are available for cooking (bring your own food) and water and a toilet are on site. A swimming area is also on site to enjoy after a warm day of birding. Showers and full service bathrooms can be accessed 1 ½ miles away in the main campground. Anyone not enamored with or unable to stay in the group camp site can make reservations in the main campground or stay at a motel in the Winthrop area.Of course the primary focus of the campout is birds. Field trips, led by leaders familiar with the area, will be scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Campers are free to roam on their own on Thursday and Friday. There will be plenty of time for lounging and enjoying the sunny and clear weather and for visiting. In past years a number of people have brought their musical instruments and we have had a sing along each evening. Cost is $10/night for each party.Reservations are required. If you want to make a reservation or if you have any questions please email or call Steven Harper at firstname.lastname@example.org and 360-650-9065.
