Wenatchee River Clean-Up by Foot
Saturday, April 16, 10-12 p.m. Join us to clean up along the Wenatchee River. April is a great time of year for this work since we’ll be able to remove any garbage that has accumulated over the winter before the river rises and washes things downstream. We will go for 2 hours, but you may leave whenever you like.
Survey Birds and Support Biodiversity
Calling all bird enthusiasts! The Wenatchee River Institute (WRI) is announcing their newest program: monthly eBird Surveys at WRI. All skill levels are welcome on these beginner level walks and surveys. There will be one eBird Survey a month, going throughout the year. You will join knowledgeable WRI naturalists to conduct four 15-minute stationary bird counts for an hour of birding. This is a great opportunity to learn about eBird, the largest biodiversity-related community science project in the world. WRI will record your observations of local wild birds on eBird. Upcoming eBird Surveys are happening on Wednesdays, April 13, May 18, June 15, and so on. Participants will meet outside River Haus at WRI at 8 a.m. and will be finished by 9:30 a.m. There is no registration required for participation.
Come prepared for the weather and bring your binoculars if you have them – if not, WRI can supply you with a pair for the survey. Total walking distance is ½ mile, over a gravel path with two moderate hills. Visit the website to find more information: https://wenatcheeriverinstitute.org/. Contact: Randee Zergerrzerger@wenatcheeriverinstitute.org 509-548-0181 ext. 7.
