The Washington Bird Dash Overnight Field Trip

Want to see 130 species in one day? Please join us on this fast-paced route from Commencement Bay in Tacoma to the Potholes in central WA.

We’ll go through 15 habitat zones in a race against time to see as many species as possible for Tahoma Audubon. We’ll start on salt water, work our way over Snoqualmie Pass, through the Ponderosa Pine zone, and into the shrub steppe of the Columbia River basin.

Novices and experts are both welcome.

We’ll stay overnight in Othello, then take a leisurely trip back on Sunday.

Please register online and provide an email address and phone number so we can to coordinate lodging and carpool details.

Each participant should be planning to donate or raise at least $150 in pledges in order to participate in this trip.

Registration for this trip closes May 4 at 4 pm.

Limit: 9 additional Birdathoners, plus trip leaders

Trip Leaders: Marcus Roening, Heather Ballash, Art Wang
