Show gratitude to Audubon

April 26, 2013 

Karen Smith points to a bird for her daughter, Hannah, 4, during a bird walk at Adriana Hess Wetland Park and Audubon Center. Remember John James Audubon’s legacy during a bird and plant walk today.


The Tahoma Audubon Society will hold an open house today to celebrate Native Plant Appreciation Week and John James Audubon’s 228th birthday. The event will be at Adriana Hess Audubon Center in University Place.

A guided bird and plant walk, led by Nell Batker, starts at 10:30 a.m.

An Audubon loose print sale will be inside the center in honor of Audubon’s birthday. Visitors can view nests and educational displays or purchase items in the small nature shop.

Visitors also will have the chance to learn about volunteer opportunities with Audubon on volunteer committees and special events at the center or for outdoor stewardship at Morse Wildlife Preserve in Graham.

The event will run from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the park, 2917 Morrison Road W., University Place. Learn more at
