Every Fall and Winter, migratory waterfowl come to the Pacific Northwest to make it their temporary home. We are celebrating this seasonal phenomenon with a very special packet about migratory birds and their wetland habitats.
It focuses on one of the region's best preserved bird habitats: Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge in Ridgefield, Washington. Families will receive a map with scavenger stickers of common birds from the park, and lots of material in the field guide to support learning about migratory birds.
As part of the packet, families will also get to learn about the Chinook Plankhouse at the park and learn more about the the Chinookan Peoples, the traditional stewards of this land.
The result is a special nature adventure that's perfect in the winter!
