PWPA’s spring birdwatching field trip was well attended, and all participants reported they really enjoyed the day. The rain definitely didn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm. 
Over 30 nature lovers joined PWPA and Greata Creek Camp for an educational and uplifting day. 
With the help of our leader James Jansen, We identified and saw 48species of birds (full list of all them coming!). We did hear Pygmy owls but were not able to see them. We have documented their location.
“You can’t love something if you don’t know it exists, and most people want to protect what they love. So making a connection to the wildlife that make the watershed their home, is a  critical part of  increasing the awareness of protecting this place”, says Alex Morrison, of PWPA
A fantastic lunch was alao prepared by the team at Greata Creek camp. All in all it was a thoroughly excellent day!
Stay tuned for PWPA’s fall migration field trip in September.
