Pilchuck Audubon Society offers Introduction to Birding in Everett class
EVERETT, WA – Cool and exciting birds are everywhere — even in Everett! Join Brian Zinke, executive director of the Pilchuck Audubon Society, for “An Introduction to Birding in Everett” on Thursday, June 15 at 6 p.m. at the Main Library, 2702 Hoyt Ave.
Want to bird watch, but not sure where to start? Interested in finding more interesting birds close to home? Zinke will share information with participants about the many birding hotspots in Everett and give an overview of the general basics of birding.
Plus, learn about the library’s birding backpacks that will be available this summer provided by Pilchuck Audubon. The kit will include binoculars and birding guides to take home for your own birding adventures.
Brian Zinke is the Executive Director of the Pilchuck Audubon Society, which serves Snohomish County and Camano Island. His background as a wildlife biologist has taken him across several states, where he's worked to conserve endangered species and species of concern, such as black-footed ferrets and Great Gray Owls. He is passionate about science and conservation, and enjoys backpacking, reading, photography — and birding — in his free time.
