Join the Kalmiopsis Audubon with trip leader Gary Maschmeyer for this outing to Arizona Beach State Park (between Port Orford and Nesika Beach). Arizona Beach is CoastWatch Mile 41, and as it happens, we are seeking a new CoastWatch adopter for that mile, so this trip could do double duty if you might consider adopting this stretch.  If you would like to volunteer (for this or any other mile), simply apply here

The group will look for songbirds in surrounding forests, Virginia Rail and Black Phoebes in the ponds, and for cormorants, grebes and possibly Black Oystercatcher from the beach. Meet Gary at Gold Beach Visitor Center at 7:45 a.m., or to carpool from Brookings, meet at the Azalea Middle School parking lot at 505 Pacific Ave in Brookings at 7 a.m. People coming from Port Orford should meet the group at the Arizona Beach parking area east of Highway 101 at 8:15 a.m.
