Saturday, October 1: Annual Mushroom Hike With Greg Hovander
Location TBD. Call or email Kathy to reserve your place on this hike, limited to 12 participants. Like most everything else this year, the mushroom season has come early! Fall species are already popping up in the mountains. This will be an all-day hike with expert mycologist and pharmacist Greg Hovander. Greg is a walking encyclopedia of mycological knowledge, from identification of hundreds of fungal species, to medicinal qualities, to nutrition and cooking methods. We'll proceed at a leisurely pace at first, locating and learning about all types of fungi.

Pilchuck Audubon Society’s response to bird abatement strategies being implemented at the Port of Everett
Like other members of the birding community, Pilchuck Audubon Society is shocked and disturbed by the Port of Everett’s strategy of hanging dead birds as an abatement tactic to deter gulls from their facilities. We understand the issues and concerns that birds can cause at Port facilities, including airports and waterfront properties, but are confident there are other cost effective measures for bird abatement that could have been employed.
For most people, birds represent an amazing part of our ecology and landscapes, including coastal and waterfront areas, so we understand and share our community’s distress with the Port’s decision to implement a “dead bird” strategy to scare gulls away from roosting, foraging and nesting areas.
Pilchuck Audubon Society would like to extend an invitation to meet with the Port of Everett for a discussion of the challenges they face at their facilities with respect to birds. We’d welcome a discussion of how we might support alternatives for avian management/avian protection plans. In many respects, birds are our business and we work every day toward conserving their populations and habitat…including along the Everett waterfront.
