Experience the sights and sounds of our Birds of Winter!
Our Skagit Valley Geese Tour takes you on an Adventure in search of the thousands of snow geese & smaller flocks of tundra and trumpeter swans that overwinter in our farm fields. Ready to listen to the cackling cacophony produced by the highly gregarious geese and the unmistakable honking of the swans?
Our local expert birding guide Stephanie will teach you how to identify them by sight, sound and in flight. Also about their migration, reproduction, diets, population status, environmental & human threats, and their impacts on farmlands. In addition, you’ll learn how to use binoculars and be a “Mindful Birder”.
Find out how to participate in our ongoing swan and geese research projects in collaboration with local and international researchers.
Frame your photos with stunning backdrops of historical barns, clouds, the North Cascades and Mt Baker! And in late March, bright yellow daffodil fields will “Color Your Spirit!”
Note: Don’t let winter weather deter your enthusiasm for joining our Skagit Valley Geese Tour. Much of the birding can be done from the warmth of our vehicle. Nonetheless, warm clothing, gloves, hat and rain gear are highly recommended.
Our Skagit Valley Geese Tour accommodates all walking abilities.
