Event: Skagit Flats & Samish Valley Field Trip


A very popular trip to the Samish Valley & Skagit Flats starring a plethora of swans, snow geese, wintering raptors and occasional surprises (there have been recent sightings of a Blue Jay and a Painted Bunting)
Participants make their own lodging arrangements (Mt. Vernon, Burlington, Anacortes) and are responsible for their own meals both days.

Bring: Optics (binocs &/or scopes) and lunch for both days. Dress warmly and be prepared for inclement weather. We will probably do some car pooling on site. Participating cars will require a Discover Pass for access to state lands
