Tuesdays & Thursdays, February 7-16, 1:30-3pm ~ Basic Birding. Do you find yourself listening to an odd chirp while walking or gardening? Are you fascinated by the random rustlings in the bushes? Do you notice and enjoy the birds in your world, but wish you knew more about these clever and busy neighbors? This is just the class for you! Participants will learn how birds behave so it will be easier to find, watch, and identify the type you are seeing. Bird identification, adaptations, and habitat will be introduced. Birds of the Oregon Coast will be our focus during this 4-session class. Participants will have access to bird guides and binoculars and will learn how to use them. The final day of class will be a field trip to identify birds in the area. Next Class to be held at Oregon Coast Community College - Lincoln City. $25 Lincoln City Campus, Room 208
Materials Fee: $10 paid to instructor at first class
This is an informational announcement from the Devils Lake Water Improvement District: Due to large tides and significant rainfall the D River at Devils Lake is experiencing a reduced outflow. As a result lake levels are rising. At approximately 5:00 p.m. this evening (Jan 21) the lake was @ 10.4' near the D River. DLWID will continue monitoring the lake conditions and send notification as conditions develop. Please be extra cautious near low lying areas and be aware of the potential for increased debris in and around the Lake.

ASLC has begun to talk about expanding our efforts in conservation, habitat restoration, and species protections. We hoped to get more specific in our next newsletter but the issue of the Elliot State Forest is too pressing and too important to wait for even a few days. Please read this action alert from Portland Audubon and take action in as many ways as you possibly can. Let me know if you need any further information. Thank you.
Joseph Youren, Vice President, ASLC
