Food For Thought: Nutrition, Exercise and Lifestyle Interventions for a Healthy Brain

Tues., November 12, 2019       6:30-8:30pm

Most of us would agree we could use a sharper brain. This course will teach you exactly how to do that. With the surprising and disturbing rise in Alzheimer's Disease, and many having family members affected by it, there is no time like the present to become active in brain preservation. And for those already on the downward slope, or with a diagnosis - there is hope! Sign up for this course and learn the multifaceted ways you can love on your brain, or help the brain and memory of a loved one. This is a MUST course to attend.

Winter Birds of the Salish Sea

Tuesday, January 21 6:30pm

Winter Birds of the Salish Sea’ is a presentation by members of the Skagit Audubon Society. This one and a half hour presentation details the history of the sea. It examines the geology and biodiversity of the sea shared by British Columbia and Washington . The Salish Sea is designated as a Global Important Bird Area (IBA) by the BirdLife International. Many birds depend on the estuary systems in the sea for their survival; the presentation goes into the importance of these systems to both residential and migratory birds.

Migration, regular seasonal journeys taken by over 3000 species of birds, has always been a mystery to many people. The second portion of this presentation will explain how’s and whys of these journeys and reason migratory birds use the specific migration flyways as they move from summer to winter territories. Finally the presentation will take a look at the common birds of the sea and identify unique features of these birds.
