Nisqually Board-Walking

I recently wrote about a grassroots effort in which I’m involved — to expand the scope of funding for our National Wildlife Refuges. We’ve started the Wildlife Conservation Stamp project to generate public interest and promote the idea and implementation of a birders’, photographers’, and wildlife watchers’ stamp for our Refuges. The details are at our website: WildlifeConservationStamp.org. We also have a Facebook page where support — if you are in favor of the idea — is as simple as a “Like.”

This is a cross post, about Nisqually Wildlife Refuge near Olympia, Washington. The biggest draw for visitors is Nisqually’s new and immense boardwalk (2011) which stretches out into the estuary. You can see my write-up and photos on the subject here: Boardwalking at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.

      Mia, the boardwalk is, indeed, amazing. When I first walked it, I remember thinking that if it were in the Bay Area (or Florida, I imagine), not only would I be surrounded by masses of shorebirds, they’d probably be perched all over it. There’s a great, short boardwalk at a sanctuary in So Cal and it’s always used by terns as a resting/preening spot. It’s interesting being on water but still inland from the Pacific, removed from the mass migration we had around the Bay. I have yet to walk the boardwalk at high tide. I’m interested to see how the birds change with the waters.
