The Necanicum Watershed Council invites the community to their 12th annual fundraising event, “Necanicum Bird Discovery Day.” The event, held on April 7 at the Bob Chisholm Community Center, is timed to take full advantage of the spring migratory birds as they pass through Seaside on the Pacific flyway.
Join the council and friends at 8am at the Bob Chisholm Community Center for a morning walk and to learn how to identify many of our feathered migratory friends. Bring the family to the Community Center after 10 a.m. to build and take home your own bird house, make a fish print, or decorate your own reusable bag. Visit booths from various partners, including Sunset Empire Parks and Recreation, Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, Seaside Aquarium and Haystack Rock Awareness Program.
A live bird show from the Wildlife Center of the North Coast takes place at noon.
Bird Day connects the council to reach hundreds of community members and visitors, and to share about birds in the Necanicum watershed. All funds raised from the raffle of local business-donated items goes towards their education and outreach programs, including the osprey webcam in Broadway Park. Go to www.seasideosprey.org to keep an eye out for the return of the osprey pair and watch as they make nest renovations for another summer raising their young.
