FIELD TRIPS—Experienced guides lead monthly outings to prime birding areas. We also host an annual Christmas Bird Count.
CONSERVATION—We closely monitor environmental issues and legislation and promote timely action and support, consistent with our mission and values. Purple Martin Project—Nesting boxes have been installed and are being monitored at various locations in Kitsap County. Wildlife viewing platforms have been funded by Kitsap Audubon in locations throughout Kitsap County, in collaboration with local Boy Scout Troops and both city and county parks departments.
EDUCATION—In addition to our popular monthly programs, we provide special Audubon Adventures curriculum materials to 45 fourth-grade classrooms in Kitsap County. We also provide volunteers and educational displays at numerous related community events.
