Audubon group invites residents to learn about ‘Birdscaping’

The next Backyard Birding class examines “Birdscaping — Inviting Birds to Your Yard” at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 5, at the Dungeness River Audubon Center at Railroad Bridge Park, 2151 W Hendrickson Road.

Hosted by the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, this series of 10 classes offers interested local residents information about observing and protecting wild bird life in our region.

The fourth in the 2018-19 series is presented by Carolyn Wilcox, owner and guide for Experience Olympic Tours on the Olympic Peninsula. In this class, Wilcox will launch a new community outreach winter campaign to invite birds into area residents’ yards. She will touch on topics such as general wildlife ecology, invasive bird and plant species, feeders and nest boxes, snags and other dead wood habitat, landscape planning, cats and window strikes and discouraging rats.

Backyard Birding may be taken either as individual classes or in a series. The cost of each session is $5. Admission is free for anyone younger than 18.

For participants completing five sessions in the series, Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society offers a free, one-year membership.
