Every Memorial Day Weekend, members of Washington State’s Audubon Chapters and their friends gather in the Wenas Valley, located on the east slope of the Cascade Mountains between Ellensburg and Yakima. With a variety of natural history and recreation opportunities, the Wenas Valley is a beautiful area that supports a fascinating assortment of spring flora and fauna, and offers the spiritual fulfillment of simply being outdoors in the spring. Everyone, whether members of Audubon chapters or not, is welcome to join us for this outing.

The 2020 Wenas Audubon CampOut has been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. Traditionally, the CampOut takes place on Memorial Day Weekend.
As much as we would have liked to have been able to hold a virtual campfire program this year in lieu of the CampOut, unfortunately we were not able to make it happen.
We hope you all will be safe and stay close to home to enjoy this holiday weekend. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year, Memorial Day weekend.
The annual CampOut takes place at The Hazel Wolf Bird Sanctuary at Wenas Creek Campground (SW of Ellensburg).
This casual and friendly gathering offers a variety of activities, including birding field trips, wildflower walks, field sketching, and campfire presentations PLUS special guest speaker TBA. You do not need to be an Audubon member to attend. All are welcome to this family-friendly event!
