  • October 8th: Owling  Leader: Gary Lyon (299-2000)
    Meet at 8:30 pm in the parking lot at the Wynn Nature Center, 1.5 miles East Skyline Rd.  Later in the evening we will regroup at the muskeg at approximately .7 mile Ohlson Mountain Rd.
    Dress warmly.  Bring a flashlight so you can see in the dark walking along the uneven, shadowy trails later at night.  (This is NOT for attracting the owls, just for our own safety!!) All ages are welcome.  No dogs.  And Gary advises quiet—the quieter we are the more owls might be apt to come closer and the easier to hear them far away. A voluntary donation to the Wynn (CACS) would be nice if you wish.
    If October 8th is too windy and/or too rainy, Gary has scheduled October 9th as an alternative, same place and same time (8:30 pm).  We will post any changes on the website immediately and will attempt to get it on KBBI in a timely manner.
  • November 12th: Leader’s Choice.  Details T.B.A.

Birding Trip Leader: Michael Craig (907-235-0631), unless otherwise noted. All trips cosponsored by Kachemak Bay Birders and the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. All are free and everyone is welcome to attend.
