Third-Wednesday Bird Walks at Horan Natural Area

North Central WA Audubon Society's Friends of Horan invites you to come on informal monthly bird walks to explore the Horan Natural Area and see and record birds.

Outings will be on the 3rd Wednesday of the month and led by Wenatchee Naturalist, Susan Ballinger. She will record bird sighting and enter them into the community science eBird database.

The walks begin at 7:30 AM and end about 10:00. It is possible for people to join in at the start and depart early if they need to be at work. We will meet at the north parking lot at Walla Walla Park, next to the restrooms, and spend about 30 minutes in the park, and then walk the 2-mile round trip loop within Horan Natural Area, returning about 10:00 AM. Since part of the Horan trail is closed during winter, we will modify the route seasonally.

Participants at all levels of birding are welcome. No RSVP needed. We will not cancel due to weather conditions. Contact Susan to learn more (skylinebal@gmail.com).

Third-Wednesday dates: Jan. 23, Feb. 20, Mar. 20, Apr. 17, May 15, Jun. 19, July 17, Aug. 21, Sept. 18, Oct. 16, Nov. 20, and Dec. 18.
