Ecology of Leadbetter Point – Friday, 9/24, 12pm – 3pm
Join Willapa National Wildlife Refuge wildlife biologist Will Ritchie for an exciting hike at the tip of the Long Beach Peninsula in the Leadbetter Point Unit of Willapa National Wildlife Refuge. This is a wild place with limited human access that creates a sanctuary for wildlife, rare plants, and hundreds of bird species. The guided 5-mile hike traverses through forest to the beach then circles back to the bay provides many opportunities for learning about the local ecology and ongoing habitat restoration activities.
