Do you have an extra, unused or old pair of (working) binoculars? 

Tahoma Audubon will happily take those neglected and unwanted binoculars of your hands! We will let Audubon Center visitors borrow the binoculars during guided walks introduce birdwatching to the next generation and those just getting started. 

Drop them off at the center or bring to a program or arrange a time to drop them off. THANK YOU!
