Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

Field Trip: Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve

Start Date: Sun. Apr 27, 2014 8:30 am - 11:30 am

The diversity of habitats within 25 acres makes this preserve a prime area for multiple bird species. We will walk the newly constructed boardwalk through the fresh water wetland listening for Marsh Wrens, Red-wing Blackbirds and Virginia Rails. T

his is a great location for swallow species, including Purple Martins. We will observe birds foraging along the sandy beach, around the subtidal eelgrass beds and in the Guemes Channel. The mixed coniferous tree line offers habitat for songbirds and raptors. Great field trip for beginning birders! The preserve is located through the San Juan Passage neighborhood off of Hwy. 20 (12th Street) in Anacortes. From Ship Harbor Drive, turn left on to Edwards and follow to parking area. Meet at the SHIP sign.
