Field Trips

Fall Color and Fall Birds
LEADER: Steve Johnson
Saturday, October 27
8:00 AM to early afternoon

Sign up early for this popular annual trip with Steve. Visit picturesque parks and beaches in King County and Pierce County during a great time of year to look for returning fall birds. We'll travel to local parks and beaches along Puget Sound, searching for many species of sea birds and forest birds. This is a good time of year to encounter scenic views and fall color. Expect to walk short distances from the cars.

People who wish to leave early may do so.

Bring: Lunch, beverages, and warm clothes. A scope is very welcome.

Meet: 8:00AM at the Star Lake Park&Ride north of Federal Way.

Directions: Take I-5 to exit 147 north of Federal Way. Exit onto S. 272nd St. and go west one block to the light. Turn right (north) and go one block, then turn into the P&R on the right. Sign-Up: Call or email Steve Johnson, (253)941-9852 or johnsonsj5@msn.com

Weyco Property and Lake Geneva
LEADER: Barbara Petersen
Saturday, October 6
8:15 AM - Noon

Join Barbara for a morning outing in (perhaps) crisp fall weather and finish up by noon. We'll visit the Weyerhaeuser Property and nearby Lake Geneva, checking the lakes for returning waterfowl - a good opportunity to practice duck species ID skills. We'll also walk up to a quarter mile on different trails to see what birds we can find in the woods.

Dress in layers for the weather, bring beverages, snacks and optics.

Meet at Marlene's Market and Deli in Federal Way, 2565 S Gateway Center Plaza, Federal Way, 98003. It's a good place to get snacks and beverages before the trip and lunch after. Please park in the center of the parking lot or closer to S 317th St, away from the Market.

Marlene's is just west of I-5 and north of S. 320th on the back (north) side of Gateway Center. From I-5 take the S. 320th St exit and go west on S 320th. You'll need the right lane. Turn north (right) on Gateway Center Blvd. Follow it around to the right past the Ram and around to the left past the hotel. Turn left onto Gateway Central Plaza, then turn right just beyond Marlene's to access the parking area.

To sign up call or text Barbara at 253 389 3204, or by email at BPbatfan@aol.com.
