Kittitas County Community Events Calendar
Coming to Ellensburg is like Homecoming
"Coming to Ellensburg is like homecoming", writes Ken Bevis, Kittitas Audubon's next
program speaker. Ken is a former president, conservation chair, and program presenter
for Kittitas Audubon and we welcome him "home".
Ken is a habitat biologist with the Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife. he also
happens to be a singer-songwriter-naturalist that enjoys reaching out to people about the
wonders of nature. This program will feature photographs of animals and habitats,
and original songs about these fantastic creatures. Ken will take you on a tour of the important
habitats of Washington. Through pictures, testimonials and original songs, you will hear from
the species themselves. Ken is known for his odd sense of humor and inability to be shy about
anything, and he never disappoints.
Ken Bevis moved to Washington in 1986 to study spotted owls. He was a Biology
student at CWU and received his Masters from Central studying woodpeckers. Ken has
worked for the US Forest Service, Yakama Nation, and currently for the Washington
Dept. of Fish and Wildlife as a watershed steward to help recover salmon for the upper
Columbia region. He lives near Twisp in the North Cascades.
Come join us for "Animals and Habitats of Washington - in words, pictures, and song".
The program will be held at the Hal Holmes Center of the Ellensburg Public Library, on Thursday,
