BELLINGHAM, WA — Marine bird experts will host a free educational series
“Marine Birds of the Salish Sea” from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday
and Thursday,
February 22-23, at RE Sources for Sustainable Communities, 2309 Meridian
St., Bellingham. The event is sponsored by North Cascades Audubon Society
in collaboration with RE Sources for Sustainable Communities and the Cherry
Point Aquatic Reserve Citizen Stewardship Committee.

The two-part series — taught by Caanan Cowles, a biologist with more than a
decade of experience researching seabirds in the Salish Sea, and Pam Borso,
president of North Cascades Audubon Society — will teach participants about
physical characteristics of more than 30 species, their behavior, and
interesting facts about their histories. Participants are encouraged to
attend both classes. Previous class participants are welcome to attend.

After the classes, participants will have the opportunity to go on a
birding tour led by North Cascades Audubon Society. The field trip time and
date will be decided during the class.

North Cascades Audubon Society has been conducting surveys of marine birds
for several years at Cherry Point. The series is intended to increase
awareness of marine birds and the reasons the North Cascades Audubon
Society monitors them.

North Cascades Audubon Society also hosts monthly guided birding tours from 9
a.m. to noon the first Saturday of the month at Semiahmoo Park, 9261
Semiahmoo Pkwy, Blaine.
