Island Wings




Island Audubon Field Trip
July 11 from 8-10 am
Meet at Park & Ride at Ober Park

You don't have to be a member or an experienced birder to participate and no reservations are necessary -- just come down to Ober Park at 8:00 o'clock and join us for a fun visit to birding spots around the Island. 
Each bird walk is led by highly experienced birders.


Butterfly & Dragonfly Count
July 11 from 9:30 am
Meet at Park & Ride at Country Store

Join Vashon’s 19th annual 4th of July Butterfly Count for the North American Butterfly Association, and learn about both butterflies and dragonflies of Vashon-Maury. You do not need to be knowledgeable about species when you start.  We’ll teach as we go.

Bring binoculars, water, lunch, hat for shade, and multiple layers for varying temperatures. Team participants pay a $3 fee to NABA to cover count administration costs. Come with the roving team for all or part of the day. To find us mid-day, call our cell phone at 718-5770 or 818-5251. The roving team will count till 7:30pm, but you leave whenever you want.

Neighborhood counters are also needed and appreciated.   For more information, or to report your count totals, call Rayna Holtz at 206-463-3153.
