Plummers Island

The nearby island, Plummers Island, has been studied and preserved by the Washington Biologist's Field Club since 1908, giving it the distinction of the being the most studied island in North America. In Spring and Fall, keep your eyes and ears open for warblers, hawks and others migrating through. In winter watch the river for one of our nesting Bald Eagles.
