Walla Walla Christmas Bird Count - 42nd Annual
Saturday December 19th 7:30 AM Harper Joy Theater Parking Lot

CBC Group

The 42nd annual Walla Walla Christmas Bird Count will be Saturday, December 19. Meet at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot at 7:30 a.m. for orientation. Our CBC circle is centered at Bennington Lake and is 15 miles across - that's a lot of ground to cover! It is broken up into 12 areas - some areas require a lot of walking - others can be birded from the car. Areas up in the foothills may require 4 wheel drive vehicle and/or lots of walking in snow.

If you cannot come out for the day you can still contribute by counting birds at your feeder (if you live within 7.5 miles of Bennington Lake). All bird species AND numbers are counted.

There will be a wrap-up get together at 5 p.m. at Nancy Mitchell's home at 63 Wolf Fork Place. Hot soup, bread and drink provided. You do NOT have to come on the count to join in the wrap-up - and you are welcome to bring your favorite salad and/or dessert.

Please contact MerryLynn Denny or 529-0080 if you plan on participating - so she can assign folks to areas and organize the count. If you cannot come to the wrap-up please send your bird count to MerryLynn.

Field Trip: Saturday December 12th 8:00 AM Until 12:00 Noon
Pre-Christmas Bird Count Field Trip

Snow Geese

Mike Denny will lead a fun field trip to scope out several areas within the Christmas Bird Count circle. We will look for both common and special winter birds. This field trip will be an excellent opportunity for everyone to learn more about how and where the Christmas Bird Count is conducted.

Bring your binoculars and a friend or two. We will meet at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot and will carpool. Please let Mike know if you plan to attend. Questions? or E-mail Mike or call at 529-0080.


Come join us as we walk around Bennington Lake on Tuesday mornings. It's fun to see what birds are present at different times of the year and to enjoy the changes of the seasons at the lake. The walks last 2-3 hours. We do not walk in inclement weather.

The start time for the walks will change with the seasons. For more information E-mail Ginger Shoemake
