Blue Mountain Audubon Society will host a field trip to Wallula Gap from 9 a.m. to approximately 4 p.m. Saturday.

Mike and MerryLynn Denny will lead the “flowering” and birding trip to various locations in the vicinity of Wallula Gap. They’ll be on the lookout for shooting stars, prairie stars, yellow bells, buttercups and other wildflowers along the emerald green rocky hillsides in the gorge and on nearby Hatch Grade. Target birds will be loons on the Columbia River, raptors in the gorge and early spring migrants.

Come prepared for the weather and bring water, snacks, lunch, binoculars and a friend or two. Boots are recommended for the scramble over rocks. 

Meet at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot on the Whitman College campus to carpool. For more details, contact 529-0080 or
