Registration is closed

Join the Friends of Willapa National Wildlife Refuge for this free educational and fun event celebrating nature on Saturday, March 16. The rain on March 9 made it difficult for many to attend so Kristi generously agreed to do this trip.

Kristi Freese, a Professional Level IV Tracker, will lead us along the shoreline of Willapa Bay at Leadbetter Point in Oysterville to identify tracks of birds and mammals such as sanderlings, great blue herons, racoons, deer, and many more. Meet at 9AM at Leadbetter Point in the northern-most parking lot on Stackpole Road.  This trip will last about two hours.

A Washington State Discover Pass is required for parking at the Leadbetter site.  The walking is rated as easy. Terrain is sand and it may be uneven and wet. It’s an easy 2–3-mile hike on both wet and loose sand and a nature trail. Bring your favorite pair of binoculars as there will be birding opportunities along the way and dress for coastal weather conditions.
