River Center holds class on swallows

The Dungeness River Audubon Center will hold a special “Swallows in Summer” class from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, June 21.

Ken Wiersema, one of the many local Olympic Peninsula Audubon birders, will discuss the breeding, migration and diet of six different species of swallows seen in in the area’s summer skies.

Following the class, there will be a brief field trip in Railroad Bridge Park to view nesting swallows.

There is a suggested $5 donation for admission. Proceeds benefit education programs of the Dungeness River Audubon Center.
