Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

Hiking Info

SAFETY comes first so hikes may be canceled or destinations changed due to weather conditions,
forest fires and/or smoke, logging, construction or other unforeseen circumstances. A hike will be canceled if there are high wind warnings, flooding conditions, snowy or icy road conditions, or forecasts of continued heavy rain. All the hikes are on a Wednesday. For questions or additional information contact Joan Melcher at or 360.424.0407. Dogs are discouraged on Audubon-sponsored hikes and if dogs are on a hike, they must be on a leash at all times.
General safety note: upon arrival at the destination, if cancellation of the hike is determined at the discretion of the Audubon trip leader, any individual who elects to proceed is no longer considered to be a member of that Audubon sponsored activity. Additionally, carpools are arranged at the discretion of the driver(s).
PANDEMIC POLICIES: Due to the wide-spread of the delta covid virus, masks should be worn when in close contact with others and especially in vehicles unless all in the vehicle are members of the same household. Drivers of vehicles have the say as to pandemic policies withing their vehicle. It is strongly recommended that all hikers be vaccinated.
LIABILITY RELEASE: All persons who participate in the Skagit Audubon Hikes must sign a liability release. This is signed once and is kept on file until a person, by writing, asks to be removed. The release form is available on the Skagit Audubon web site and on hiking days at the sign-in location.

* means that US forest service parking permit is required.
