LOWER COLUMBIA BASIN AUDUBON SOCIETY
www.lowercolumbiabasinaudubon.org The Lower Columbia Basin Audubon Society (LCBAS) is totally for the birds! Founded in 1965, we provide local residents with opportunities to get involved in bird study, conservation, and identification. LCBAS members are involved in a variety of programs to promote bird conservation and education. We survey bird populations, restore bird habitat, and provide education programs to local schoolchildren. We welcome anyone with an interest in birds to join us on a bird walk on Bateman Island, held the first Saturday of every month (September through June). No experience or equipment is necessary! You can also get up close and personal with our feathered friends at one of the bird banding demonstrations that we offer through Richland Recreation. We hold a monthly meeting on the fourth Tuesday of the month at Kennewick First Lutheran Church. Each meeting features a talk about birds, bird biology, or bird conservation.
MID-COLUMBIA BALLET www.midcolumbiaballet.org The Mid-Columbia Ballet (MCB) is Southeastern Washington’s premier performing dance company. Incorporated in 1973, MCB’s mission is to foster and advance the art of ballet in its various forms. The MCB consists of a Senior Company and Junior Company made up of young dancers committed to the art of ballet. MCB’s repertoire includes classical, neoclassical, and modern works by choreographers from throughout the United States. MCB has been granted performance rights to several Balanchine works by the George Balanchine Trust. Guest artists from such celebrated companies as American Ballet Theatre, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Kirov Ballet, and the Bolshoi Ballet have performed with the Company.
