Habitat Hopping Trip Series

How do bird populations differ between habitats?

This series of Birdathon field trips will take us through three different habitats over three consecutive Saturdays. We will explore marine, wetland, and forest spaces and compare what we find in each one!

All experience levels are welcome. Bring good walking shoes and be ready to trek through some tall grass and sand. If you are unable to attend all three days, please let us know which you will be attending when you register.

  • April 29 – Purdy Spit: Meet at University of Puget Sound, Thompson Hall parking lot to carpool across the Narrows bridge.  [This trip of the series has been cancelled.]
  • May 6 – Mountain View Cemetery Marsh: Meet at parking lot on west side of cemetery.
  • May 13 – Swan Creek: Meet at Pioneer Way entrance. We’ll finish off our adventure with lunch at E9 Restaurant and consolidate our species list across the three trips. [This trip of the series has been cancelled.]

Registration for this series closes May 11 at 4 pm.

Limit: 20 Birdathoners per trip

Trip Leader: Brenda Miller
