Today hundreds of children will be taking an ESC field trip to a salmon-filled stream with their classes. Seeing a salmon in the wild for the first time will bring pure joy to their faces.

This holiday season, bring joy to a local child by giving today! We need YOUR help to raise funds for field trip costs and bus transportation.

Check out this short video to feel the joy kids will fill today through this ESC field trip.

If You Can Count, You Can Help Birds: Kharli Rose
Thurs 10-24 at 6 pm in the Burien Community Center

Birds can inspire and enlighten us, so let's uplift them. They face increasing threats, but you can help by simply counting them. Scientists and bird enthusiasts can learn a lot by knowing where the birds are. Their populations are dynamic and constantly in flux, which makes monitoring them challenging. Community science projects, such as the Great Backyard Bird Count, Audubon Christmas Bird Counts, Project Feeder Watch and eBird submissions provide the “big picture” about what is happening to bird populations. The more data is collected, the more scientists can investigate far-reaching questions about birds, the environment, and our role within theirs. Regardless of your birding skill level, Kharli Rose will share resources and information about upcoming counts and community projects that you can sometimes do from your own home. Kharli spent a decade in the news industry and began birding in the middle of it. This joy soon revealed many natural connections and a desire to share them with others. Working with national estuary programs, county conservation and natural resource departments and local Audubon groups were wonderful conduits. As the community engagement manager at the Environmental Science Center, Kharli is thrilled to fuse environmental stewardship with community involvement, especially in spreading the bird word.
