Short-eared owl on Leque Island by Rex Guichard


CK Eidem, Ducks Unlimited

There are changes ahead for Leque Island, which sits just west of the Stanwood/Camano Island Bridge. The dikes are failing and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has settled on a restoration plan to benefit fish and wildlife but still accommodate wildlife viewing. Join CK Eidem to learn what these plans are, what the timeline is, and how you can be involved in Pilchuck’s plans to survey Leque’s birds both pre- and post-restoration efforts.

Mr. Eidem is responsible for the development, delivery and administration of Ducks Unlimited’s conservation programs in Western Washington. Ducks Unlimited’s mission is to conserve, restore, and manage wetlands and associated habitats for North America's waterfowl. All over the county Ducks Unlimited works with farmers, government agencies, tribes, and other non-profits to restore and protect farmland and wetlands for birds.
