Everybody Out | Paddlers invited to kayak pool session

We live around some of the best rivers in Washington state and there are a plethora of paddlers in the valley, but not much in the way of a community of paddlers. Having access to an indoor pool is a great way to help grow the paddling community. Pools offer a chance for families to introduce kayaking to younger generations or for paddlers to get their friends into the sport.

Field guide

Susan Ballinger leads a bird identification class for the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust. Ballinger hopes to teach volunteers to identify birds monthly on three land trust properties. She has been documenting bird sightings for four years, twice each month. On this outing last Wednesday in the confluence of the Wenatchee River and the Columbia River, she and Westerlund Valaas spotted about 40 species in a little over two hours, including a surprising daytime sighting of a barn owl.
