Skagit Audubon

Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

Please join us for the September 8th Skagit Audubon member meeting and presentation at 7pm:

SolitudeJohn Seibert Farnsworth will be reading from his new book, Nature Beyond Solitude: Notes from the Field. Dr. Farnsworth, emeritus faculty in Environmental Studies and Sciences from Santa Clara University, lives in La Conner and the San Juan Islands, and  serves as conservation chair for Seattle Audubon. One of the chapters in the book contains a narrative about a hike in 2016 when the author joined up with Skagit Audubon and saw a bird that was a lifer for him, one of 50 species identified that day. Were you on that hike? Please register for the Zoom event at the following link:

If you would like to sign into the meeting 15 minutes early (at 6:45) SAS Treasurer, Neil O’Hara, will be giving a brief presentation about how to take photos using a scope and a smartphone.

Preregistration is required and is limited to 100 attendees. Please only one registrant per household. After you register, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Please note that we also plan to record this meeting and will be sharing it on our website at a later date. Questions: Contact Carla Helm at
