Field Trip to Horan Natural Area

September 13, Thursday

Joe Veverka will lead a birding trip through Horan Natural Area in Wenatchee on Thursday, Sept. 13. The trip will meet at the parking lot near the playground at Walla Walla Point Park at 9:00, and then do a thorough birding through Horan until 11:00, come rain, shine or smoke.

This should be an exciting time to pick up migrating waterfowl and shorebirds, such as the semipalmated sandpiper and plover seen recently by Joe. The total walking distance is 2-3 miles on level paths. No Discover Pass is needed. Please contact Joe to sign up at

NCW Audubon Social

September 26, Wednesday

It’s been awhile since the NCW Audubon has invited the community to a social. What’s a social? In our case, it’s a chance to meet other people in the Wenatchee Valley area who are interested in birds.

We are planning for a Fall Social event September 26 at the Wenatchee Valley Museum, mid-week in the evening. Young birders, new birders, advanced birders, families of birders - they are all invited to a friendly time of celebrating birds and meeting likeminded folks. It will be fun. We hope to see you there!
