On Saturday at 11 a.m. we will meet for a sack lunch at the picnic tables opposite the Olympic National Park Visitor Center, located just before you enter the park gates from Port Angeles. After lunch, we will head for the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center, making one stop to check out wildflowers along the way. If you miss the lunch, look for us at the trailhead of Hurricane Hill, about a mile beyond the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center at the top of Hurricane Ridge. On Sunday we will bird areas from Ediz Hook to Sequim with Hugh Jennings.

We'll be staying overnight on Saturday in Port Angeles. We usually stay at the Riviera Inn Motel (360-417-3955), and there are several other motels and campsites available.

If you plan to go, please call Hugh Jennings, 425-746-6351 (206-724-5597 on days of trip). Note: we particularly need someone to take the lead for the wildflower walk on Saturday which has previously been done by Bill Schmidt.
