Date changed for Whitman Mission bird walk


The date for the last summer bird walk at Whitman Mission, 328 Whitman Mission Road, has been changed to Aug. 24.

Master birder Mike Denny will lead the bird walk. Participants will meet in front of the park visitor center at 6 p.m. for the walk that will last a little more than an hour.

Participants should wear shoes that are suitable for the terrain and are encouraged to bring binoculars if they have them.

More than 200 species of birds can be found at the park over the course of a year. Some birds make their homes at Whitman Mission; many more are migrants. There is no fee for this program.

Whitman Mission is 7 miles west of Walla Walla off Highway 12. For more information, call 509-522-6357.
