Eastside Audubon Society will hold its annual gift wrap fundraiser in REI at 735 NW Gilman Blvd in Issaquah from Dec. 16 to 24. Hours will generally be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. but may vary based on store hours.
In addition to traditional gift wrapping, Eastside Audubon will sell handmade, environmentally-friendly, reusable, cloth gift bags. These gift bags are often in high demand during the holidays so get there early for the best selection.
Knowledgeable volunteers will also be on hand to talk about your favorite birds and answer questions about their habitat.
“This is a great fundraiser for us and we appreciate the support that we get from REI in Issaquah. It also provides us with the opportunity to talk with customers who care about their local wildlife community,” says Tereza Marks, Executive Director.
