December 20th is one of North Central Washington Audubon’s Christmas Bird Count days! Wenatchee River Institute is partnering with NCW Audubon Society to lead one of the routes along the Waterfront Trail here in Leavenworth. Audubon and other organizations will use our data collected in this long-running wildlife census to assess the health of bird populations, and to help guide conservation actions.
We will all start the bird count at 8:30am at the River Haus at WRI. You are not required to stay for the whole bird walk, but can join for any amount of time. WRI staff will stay for the entire route. No registration required.
All birding skills are welcome! Binoculars available for borrowing at WRI. Dress for cold weather and non-aerobic time outside. Bring snacks for your personal fuel!
We will meet at Wenatchee River Institute, 347 Division Street in Leavenworth. From there we will walk the route given to us from NCW Audubon.
