Celebrate Earth Month with Audubon!

We want to do something a little different to celebrate Earth Month this year so we have planned -

A Fun Packed Evening with Family Friendly Entertainment and Gardening Tips for Bird Watchers.

Children and fun loving adults will enjoy the interactive and lively ShoutBack! Program freaturing an Ode to a Vulture, the Snollygaster, and others by outdoorsman and freelance writer Wayne Heinz.

Backyard Birders will enjoy Lori Wollerman Nelson and others who will share tips on how to attract birds to your yard.

Tweny lucky audience members will go home with a wooden nesting platform ready to mount somewhere in your yard!

There will be a short business presentation and as always there will be cookies and refreshments!


Wayne Heinz, trained in fisheries science and boating enthusiast, taught science in high school and college for twenty years. Since retiring he has worked as a freelance writer winning many awards from the Northwest Outdoor Writers Association. You can check out his website at  wayneheinzoutdoors.com

Dr. Lori Wollerman Nelson is a professor at WSU Tri-cities during the week but, she is the person you want along with you on a natural history hike! Lori completed her PhD on acoustic communication in frogsShe also loves salamanders and writing, but we know her for her great birding skills! Her "crooked path to writing" has lead her to create our LCBAS Birds in Your Backyard brochure. Check out her web presence at www.loriwnelson.com.
