May 25, 2019, Saturday Turnbull Wildlife Refuge Family Trip

  • Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge (map)

Leaders: Sandy & Richard Sollie

This outing is billed as “kid friendly” with the emphasis on fun, some exercise and an introduction into birding. We’ll have our grandkids Aaden & Kolton who are 9 & 8 years with us, who have been birding with us for the past couple of years.

We will meet at the Turnbull Wildlife Refuge HQ parking lot at 8:30 AM. Plan on being out for about 2 hours. We’ll be walking the Pine Loop Lakes route and around the hiking trails by the Wildlife HQ.

Please bring binoculars, cameras, etc. If you don’t have this equipment, we’ll have scopes and a couple extra pairs of binoculars available for those who need to borrow some. Our goal is to identify birds and educate the kids & their families about birding and the rich experience it provides.

Contact Richard at contactme@richardsollie.com or 509-981-9003 to register or if you have questions.

Target species: A variety of ducks and geese, and possibly some swan. In addition, a variety of songbirds, such as bluebirds, swallows, chickadees, nuthatches, and blackbirds.
