Four members of the North Central Washington Audubon Society — Susan Ballinger, Mark Oswood, and Tim and Mary Gallagher — recently conducted three presentations in Central Washington entitled: “The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and Coastal Plain: A Visual Conversation.”

Mark Oswood shared his work studying the ecology of Alaskan fresh waters in two of the locations.
