Audubon Birdloop Work Parties
Since March, 2006, BirdLoop work parties have been held on the first Saturday of the month. More than 200 volunteers from Eastside Audubon, the community and Microsoft Day of Caring events have invested 2500+ hours of service on the BirdLoop project.
We expect our first Saturday work parties to continue for the foreseeable future. Contact Margaret Snell at firstname.lastname@example.org to get on our work party email list.

Work We Have Done
For three years, Glenn Eades has directed the monthly work parties to remove invasive species such as Scotch Broom and Reed Canary Grass in the meadow and along the trail, as well as blackberry vines that were choking out native trees and shrubs.
Under the direction of Sunny Walter, we transformed two county transit kiosks into beautiful interpretive kiosks for the Meadow and River entrances to the BirdLoop. We also installed new display cases, and populated them with maps and posters. The Eastside Audubon Photography group donated images for our BirdLoop bird and wildlife posters.
Over the course of the project Karen Ridlon, Therese Eby, and Margaret Snell have contacted volunteers and tracked their hours.
