Calendar of events

Bird walks
Bird walks will be on the third Saturday of each month. To keep the trips comfortable and safe, they will be limited to 12 participants. If you’d like to go on a bird walk, please email coordinator Sylvia Soholt at

Saturday, November 19. Jim Evans is leading a walk around Fisher Pond, so in addition to listening and looking for birds, you can expect to hear Jim identify native flora and fauna around the pond.  Those of you who have participated in his online classes will be listening for Jim’s droll humor to be injected in the conversations.  Meet at the parking lot for Fisher Pond and be ready to walk for a couple of hours, beginning at 9:00 AM

Paradise Valley bird habitat work parties

showing-off-crowns-400px-WTo enhance wild bird habitats, Vashon Audubon is helping the Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust care for a portion of the Judd Creek Preserve in Paradise Valley. We remove holly, ivy, and other invasive plants at our work parties.

All work parties are from 10 AM-12:30 PM (come and go as you wish). Upcoming sessions are Thursday, October 20 and 27.

To join in, meet at the Judd Creek Loop Trail trailhead on the east side of 111th Ave SW in Paradise Valley (NOT the parking lot on the west side of 111th close to 204th SW). Dress for the weather, including sturdy shoes. Please bring your own work gloves and hand tools, as well as water, snacks, and your sense of humor and purpose!
