Early Birders Sunrise Walk

Brush the sleep from your eyes and get ready to bird!

We’ll meet at 5:30 am at the Starbucks in Old Town and leave promptly at 5:45 for our sunrise walk with the birds.

We’ll go along Ruston Way, walking along the promenade toward Puget Park with the option to enter the lower reaches of the park to contrast woodland birds with shorebirds.

The walk should take about two hours and is an out-and-back route spanning a couple of miles of easy terrain.

We will have one car near Puget Park to accommodate a few people who may need a ride back to the start, but we encourage you to make the entire trip by foot.

No dogs because we want to see birds!

Please bring your own binoculars (if you have them, or request to borrow a pair from Tahoma Audubon), a guide book (if you want), water, snacks and appropriate clothing for the morning’s conditions. 

Registration for this trip closes May 19 at 4 pm.

Limit: None!

Trip Leaders: Liza Higbee-Robinson, Merci & Brandon Clinton
