Nisqually NWR - Staff presentation - Stewardship calendar for 2014-Birds-Hike

February 22, 2014 

Please join the Olympia Mountaineers for their annual Conservation and Stewardship presentation, projects planning meeting and hike at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. Meet at the Visitor Center for the Wildlife Refuge at 9:00 am for a staff presentation on the natural history of the refuge and an update on the status of the Estuary restoration.
Exchange ideas on conservation and stewardship projects in the South Sound area for the year. We are looking for outdoor enthusiasts who want to play a small role in helping protect and restore the magnificent gifts of the Pacific Northwest. Get dirty and give back to nature.

At approximately 10:30 a hike of the refuge
grounds follows the meeting. The birding is great this time of year. Bring your binoculars or borrow mine. The Refuge has a $3.00 entrance fee. Many federal
passes are accepted, including Golden Eagle and Golden Age passes.  Contact Jim French for additional information   [masked]

    Michael, the representative for the US Fish & Wildlife Services, presented a very interesting and detailed history & overview of the refuge / estuary. And Jim French did his best to pull us all together for ideas / suggestions on what we can do in the coming year for conservation & stewardship projects. I thought the turnout was great and enjoyed seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones.

    Thanks Jim for inviting the Meet Up group as well. I'm glad I went, I have been to Nisqually several times but I had never heard about the history of the Nisqually Delta before. Hope to see you out on the trails again. Kay

    I plan on being there unless we get a mud slide blocking 101 with all this rain we've had. Kay
