Pam Borso, president of North Cascades Audubon Society, leads a tour of Whatcom Museum’s extensive collection of taxidermied shorebirds at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24, in the Syre Education Center, 201 Prospect St.
Borso’s talk is free with $5 admission. Museum members are admitted free.
The Syre Center, in a former Bellingham Fire Department station, features natural history displays that represent pioneer life, logging and Native Americans — plus an impressive collection of several hundred taxidermied birds. The building is normally open only to school groups and for special events.
It’s open noon to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays, from Thursday until Feb. 5, while the museum’s Lightcatcher galleries are between major exhibitions. Admission of $5 allows entry to all three Whatcom Museum buildings: the Lightcatcher, Old City Hall and the Syre.
