Skagit Audubon

Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

Barney Lake Conservation Area – Mt. Vernon

Start Date: Sun. May 6, 2018 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Duration: 4 Hours

Skagit Land Trust’s 361-acre Barney Lake Conservation  Area protects a variety of habitats from extensive wetlands to uplands, streams, and farmland just east of Mt. Vernon.  Skagit Audubon and its members have been instrumental in adding to this protected area.  We’ll visit one or more parts of the preserve, particularly looking for warblers, vireos, and other neotropical migrants recently returned as well as resident species.  Read about Barney Lake Conservation Area at  Dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes for walking over uneven ground.  Bring binoculars.  A spotting scope may be useful but isn’t essential.  Meet in the eastern portion of the PETCO parking lot in Mt. Vernon off College Way just east of I-5 Exit 227.  We’ll form carpools there.  Leader:  Tim Manns (360.336.8753) or email at:
