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.
November 27th—Meeting and Presentation by Jim Herbert: Birds of Hyder, Alaska
Presentation: in June of this year Jim Herbert and Kerry Martin drove the Alcan and Cassiar Highways to Hyder, AK. This small town in Southeast is more Canadian than American. It is also a mecca for many birds not found elsewhere in Alaska. Herbert will show slides of the trip as well as discussing travel logistics.
