Swallows – “Acrobats of our spring and summer skies”

Speaker  Ken Wiersema

Wednesday, March 21 OPAS Program – 7 pm

Each year’s first sighting of Swallows means the renewal of spring, warmth and growth brought by summer are on their way.  Swallows can devour flying insects, nest in our yards, and be fun to observe. Come and enjoy an illustrated program concentrated on our local Swallow species, their identification, and how we can conserve and help protect the environment they need to flourish. 

When Ken Wiersema moved to Clallam Co in 1994, Swallows peaked his engineering interest with the need to build and install nest boxes for the birds as they returned to his pasture and pond each spring.  He has committed to learning about the Swallows, building boxes that meet their needs, and collecting photos and sounds of their actions. Ken is a past OPAS president, past member of the Audubon Washington State Board, 40+ year member of National Audubon, and a volunteer instructor at the Dungeness River Audubon Center. He is currently OPAS’s Education Chair.

OPAS monthly meetings are open to the public.
