KACHEMAK BAY BIRDERS
Kachemak Bay Birders, established in 2008, is an informal organization of individuals interested in birds, birding, and the conservation of birds. We have no membership fees; our meetings and trips are free and open to the public.
Fishline Cleanup Day at the Fishing Hole: Sept. 21st
Meet at the “Fishing Hole” sign; cleanup is from 1:00-3:00 pm. Bring gloves, bags will be provided.
This happens to be International Coastal Cleanup Day! (Did we pick a good day for this or what?!)
COASST Training and Refresher Class: Sept 29th from 10:00 am-4:00 pm at the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies (708 Smokey Bay Way).
The COASST (Coastal Observation And Seabird Survey Team) program is administered by the U. of Washington with beaches surveyed throughout the Pacific Northwest and HI. Many of our birders participate in this important monitoring program to find beached birds and to keep an eye on the condition of our beaches year round. We always need more folks to help! If you have questions about the program in general, call Lani 399-9477.
All trips and activities cosponsored by Kachemak Bay Birders and the Maritime National Wildlife Refuge.
