Meet at 8:30 at the South Mount Vernon Park and Ride south of the I-5 Anderson road exit at Hickox and Highway 99. Carpool to Fisher Slough as there is limited on-site parking along the north dike of Fisher Slough. Joelene will be at the site early to make sure the gate is open and help park cars. A map will be provided in field trip reminder mail. This field trip will look at the Nature Conservancy's restoration project, its goals, what's been done, monitoring, and what's been learned. Come ready to learn about estuaries. Bob will lead the bird portion of the tour. It is a good location to see some of Skagit's big wintering waterfowl.
