Billy Frank-Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge: Tuesday, June 13. Al Westphal, Leader, email@example.com, 206-780- 7844 (e-mail preferred). A long half-day trip, but there are few places in the region better for observing a great variety of nesting bird species, and they should all be here by mid-June. We will walk the forest and barn trails and as far out on the boardwalk as we care to go. There is a good option for lunch after birding at Norma’s just outside the refuge. Meet at the parking lot by the visitor center at 8:30. a.m.
Ruby Creek Marsh (Port Orchard): Saturday, June 10. Bob Wiltermood, host and leader: Ruby Creek Marsh is a 23-acre preserve just southwest of Port Orchard.
