General Meeting & Program
 Time: 7:00 PM      
Defending Against Mt. St. Helenís Mining

                                                   Speakers:  Nicole Budine

"A Canadian mining company has plans to destroy a beautiful river valley near Mount St. Helens in their search for gold, copper, and Molybdenum. The Green River flows through old growth forests, roadless areas, volcanic blast zone, and the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. This remote valley provides critical habitat for salmon, drinking water to downstream communities, and a place where families can hike and explore. Since 2005, the Cascade Forest Conservancy, formerly the Gifford Pinchot Task Force, has been organizing the fight to against this risky mining proposal.  Please join Nicole Budine, Policy and Campaign Manager at the Cascade Forest Conservancy, for a presentation on their current efforts to stop this mine and how you can get involved."

February Birding: 
               Raptors at Woodland Bottoms
                     Feb. 10th, Saturday

Leader:  Susan Setterberg,  360-980-0884
When: Feb. 10, Saturday     
Time: 8:00 AM
Where: Take Exit 23 off of I-5 North at Woodland. Go under the freeway to the west and park in the southwest corner of the Walmart parking lot where we will carpool. Snow or ice cancels but since we will be in cars most of the time, we will still go with rain.  

We will be searching for winter raptors, Sandhill Cranes, Bald Eagles and if we're lucky Great Horned Owl on nest. There's also a good possibility of a variety of ducks and gulls on the river to try to sort through. We will be out until noon or 1 pm depending on what we find.
