The Refuge This Weekend

Come down to the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge (HBNWR) this weekend March 4-6th for the spectacle of the Aleutian Cackling Goose flyoff at dawn. There will be family fun all weekend and the refuge is open extra hours. There are thousands of geese and lots of other waterfowl and raptors. The visitor center and boardwalk make a great place to observe wildlife, and staff and trip leaders will be on hand to show you the birds, or make a birdhouse if you want. Friday night kicks off with an always popular talk by Dr Stan Harris on the history of Humboldt Birds, sunset with the geese and friends to talk "wildlife" with. Friday, Saturday or Sunday pay a visit, and don't forget the Audubon Banquet Saturday Night. See you there Sunday when I will lead a carpool trip around the Eel River Bottomlands. Full details available at the refuge call 733-5406.

Yours Rob
