We have been attempting to figure out how to safely resume some WRN activities. David Gascoigne came up with the idea of leading multiple walks with small groups rather than a single walk with twenty participants. So, he and Miriam Bauman organized five outings to Columbia Lake during the week of September 7 – 12, 2020, alternating between morning and evening, with a limit of four other participants per walk, so that it would be easy to maintain social distancing while also permitting everyone to see the birds found. Here are a few photos from the various walks.
For the full report on the walks, with lots of photos, see David’s blog at Large Milkweed Bugs, Laurel Creek, Hillside Park and COVID Walks.
