Join a Refuge volunteer on this nature walk that is sure to teach you something new about the natural splendor of the Refuge.
See the rich profundity of avian life at Nisqually in all its unfettered glory. No bird walk offers a more complete look at what is present at the Refuge. This weekly survey regularly includes a number of the best and most knowledgeable birders to be found in the area. Rain or shine, winter or summer, no corner of the Refuge is left untouched.
What subtle cues do experienced birders use to quickly and accurately identify species? Birding is nothing less than the art of seeing, so the techniques used by birders increase awareness of all things natural. Refuge Ranger Michael Schramm will guide you through the estuary's diverse habitats on an odyssey of avian discovery, all the while teaching the ins and outs of birding.
