Birds of Winter Swanrise
A Valentine’s Celebration with the Skagit Land Trust!
February 16, 2019, 6:45am to 9:30am at Barney Lake.

Did you know that swans are monogamous and often mate for life?

Come celebrate these lovebirds as we venture close to their overnight haven at Barney Lake, and watch as they fly off into the sunrise. In order to catch the fly-over, we are meeting at 6:45 am (early bird gets the worm).

Many other birds winter at Barney Lake and bald eagles nest along the shore, so be sure to bring your binoculars!
We will provide some spotting scopes, as well as some hot beverages for the cold morning. Rubber boots are recommended. Parking is difficult onsite, so we will meet at the Skagit Valley Softball Fields parking lot on Martin Road and carpool from there.

This event is limited, so please RSVP. We are capping it at twenty people, then will start a waitlist. You will receive an email within a day after registration confirming your RSVP:  http://www.skagitlandtrust.org/event.aspx?eventid=480

Fidalgo Bay Carstens Stewardship
February 2, 2019


Come join Skagit Land Trust and lend a hand in the conservation and preservation of the Fidalgo Bay shoreline! This small parcel contains a mixed ecosystem of upland trees and shrubs as well as marine foraging and nesting habitats. From the site there is abundant bird watching. You can often see herons, hummingbirds, ducks, sandpipers and other waterfowl. Often otters are seen swimming in Fidalgo Bay from here, as well as deer wandering on the property. The shoreline is used by dungeness crab, pacific herring, and hardshell clams. At this event we will be pulling ivy from the sloping area down to the water. We will then be spreading seed and planting native shrubs to try and reclaim these areas from the ivy.
