Willapa Nature Notes

Listen to our show LIVE on KMUN.org and CoastRadio.org
Tuesdays at 8:42am

The Friends of the Willapa Wildlife Refuge, a nonprofit organization, work to support Refuge programs and enhance awareness and appreciation of the Refuge. For this reason, the Friends have teamed up with Coast Community Radio to produce a weekly program, Willapa Nature Notes.

Learn about endangered species, as well as more commonly seen species; discover how we can help the Refuge; and find out what grows, both wanted and unwanted, along our trails, roadsides and backyards. Our production team is Kitt Fleming, the voice of Nature Notes, and Bob Duke, our intrepid producer. Here are some of our upcoming Nature Notes:

June 15-19 – Summer Solstice
June 22nd and 25 – Our Musical Interlude bird calls part 1, Madeline Kalbach
June 28 and July 6 – Shorebirds by Jackie Ferrier
July 13 and 17 – Our Musical Interlude bird calls part 2, Madeline Kalbach
