REGISTER TO WIN: A FREE pass to a Reader Rendezvous event with Julie Zickefoose!
BWD will draw a winner for this prize on Jan. 6, 2014. The winner will receive a complimentary weekend pass to Julie's Reader Rendezvous event in Harrisville, WV, including a meal plan (a $495.00 value!). The event will be held on August 22-24, 2014, at North Bend State Park. (Note that this ticket does not cover lodging, travel costs, or transportation to and from the event). In order to receive this prize, the winner must reply to our notification e-mail within 48 hrs.
Join Naturalist Julie Zickefoose in her favorite local birding spot, a wooded lake full of red-headed woodpeckers! Bring binoculars, camera with telephoto lens, sunscreen, and a wide-brimmed hat. Feel free to bring your own canoe, kayak, or bicycle. We'll supply the kayaks (and bikes) and a quick lesson in how to use a double-bladed paddle. North Bend also offers biking on extensive rail trails marked by thrilling tunnels. We'll stay and dine at the park lodge, and pack a lunch for our day trips. You'll have plenty of opportunity to interact with Julie and catch her enthusiasm for all things that creep, swim, grow, walk or fly.
