For a little post-holiday getaway that doesn't involve a lot of travel, the public is invited to "visit" the Pacific Northwest at the Audubon Center and Sanctuary.
Bill Colter, a longtime area resident, will describe his travel experience at Audubon's First Friday Lunch Bunch at 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 4.
Colter will share stories and photos of his 2012 trip to the Pacific Northwest that included visits to North Cascades National Park, Lake Chelan and the Grand Coulee Dam on the Columbia River. He will also tell what he learned about desert ecology on his two-day side trip to Oliver, British Columbia, Canada.
The public can learn more about the Pacific Northwest when Bill Colter, a longtime area resident, shares photos and stories of his 2012 trip to the northwest at the Audubon Center and Sanctuary’s First Friday Lunch Bunch on Jan. 4. Pictured is Colter’s picture of the North Cascades Scenic Highway.
A regular Audubon volunteer, Colter's most ambitious Audubon project is the Enchanted Forest that he co-chairs with Bob Ungerer.
Following the program, coffee and tea will be provided for a bring-your-own brown bag lunch. The fee for attending is $7 or $5 for Friends of the Nature Center. Reservations are not required.
The Audubon Center and Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren.
