Wahkiakum Outdoors' educational presentation set for April 1


March 16, 2023

Wahkiakum Outdoors will host an educational presentation, “Wings over the Long Beach Peninsula” on Saturday, April 1 at 2 p.m., with Madeline Kalbach, Ph.D.

Southwest Washington (especially the Long Beach Peninsula area) has long been a bird-watching “hot spot” of the Pacific Northwest. In addition to the numerous shorebird species wintering and nesting along the beaches, many in-shore seabirds can be seen there. Several raptors migrate across its coast and inland areas, including an occasional snowy owl.

Birding locations and events on the Peninsula will be mentioned. Contact Mike Passmore (601-831-0360) for more information about the April 1 event to be held at the Hope Center, 320 S. 3rd St., Cathlamet.

Dr. Kalbach, Professor Emerita - University of Calgary, is a very popular (and frequent) writer for the Chinook Observer focused on birds and other environmental issues of the area. She lives part-time on the Peninsula and has been involved in numerous wildlife studies.
