Kitsap Audubon December 14th Program: Connecting Birds and People by Gene Bullock.  Kitsap Audubon meets from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Poulsbo Library Community Room, 700 NE Lincoln Rd., Poulsbo WA 98370. For information, contact Gene Bullock at genebullock@comcast.net

Some 47 million of us are bird watchers, according to surveys by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. We buy 100
million tons of bird seed every year and support a book, software, equipment, and
ecotourism industry that generates $107 billion in annual revenues. Besides being good for state and local economies, it helps birds because people want to save
what they know and love. Bird watching is a wonderfully enjoyable way to connect people of all ages and abilities with birds and nature. As one of America’s fastest growing hobbies, it profoundly affects our
attitudes, public policies and relationships with the environment. Kitsap Audubon and its myriad connections weave a sometimes surprising tapestry in the Kitsap community. Gene Bullock has been editor of the Kingfisher for 12 years and has organized
the annual Kitsap County Christmas Bird Count for 14 years. For the last five years
he has been writing a monthly column on bird watching that appears in six Kitsap
weekly newspapers.
