Skagit Flats & Samish Valley

Leader: Bob Iddins

Note: Preregistration is required – see below

Costs: No charge for outing; however participants make their own lodging arrangements (Mt. Vernon, Burlington, Anacortes) and are responsible for their own meals both days.

Meeting place: Take the 8:00 am ferry from Port Townsend to Coupeville (reservations are strongly recommended). Upon exiting the ferry we’ll meet at the parking area for the boat ramp adjacent to the ferry terminal. Turn right after exiting ferry. For those going early or coming from there areas, we’ll meet at the parking lot for the Farmhouse Restaurant at the intersection of HWY 20 and La Connor Whitney Road (between Mount Vernon and Anacortes) at about 10 am

Features: 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)

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
