Features: A very popular trip to the Samish Valley & Skagit Flats starring a plethora of swans, snow geese, wintering raptors and occasional surprises. 

Meeting place: Take the 8:00 am ferry at Port Townsend for Coupeville (reservations are strongly recommended). Upon exiting 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 other areas, we’ll meet at the parking lot for the Farmhouse Restaurant at the intersection of HWY 20 and LaConnor Whitney Road (between Mount Vernon and Anacortes) at about 10 am.

Bring: Optics (scopes are helpful) 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. 

Further information: Preregistration required! (Please provide contact information in the event of late-breaking developments or severe weather conditions requiring a late cancellation.)  Appropriate for participants with limited mobility.
