Migratory birds are avian migrants that connect the Methow Valley with landscapes as distant and exotic as the high arctic tundra and the pampas of South America.

Presenter Don McIvor has been Nevada Director of Bird Conservation for Audubon and Science Coordinator for Audubon Washington. He currently teaches Ornithology at Wenatchee Valley College in Omak and has several books to his credit.

Last Sunday presentations are free to the public. October is our last Last Sunday Presentation this year and it is your last chance to support these talks through Give Methow.

Please consider helping us continue this program by donating to the Interpretive Center. Visit www.givemethow.org to show your support by October 31.
