Everyone has heard of Birding Big Years, but how about one for mammals?

Come hear Steve & Martha Ellis describe their year-long journey in 2016 to see as many mammal species as possible in the wild.  They’ll highlight some of their experiences and describe the roles these mammals play in their various habitats.

Mammals are vital to healthy ecosystems and can be found throughout our regions, living on mountain peaks and probing the depths of the Salish Sea.  You’ll come away with a better understanding of our fellow mammals and a  new appreciation for these dynamic creatures.

Whidbey Audubon members Steve & Martha Ellis have been leading walks and giving talks on a wide range of natural history topics for more than 25 years.  Steve is the current chapter vice-president; Martha is also a member of the Washington Native Plant Society.
