Our Oct. 25th Free Wetlands Walk has been cancelled

October 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

SORRY, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO RECOMMENDATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS FROM THE STATE OF WASHINGTON, CITY OF SEATTLE, & THE KING CO. DEPT. OF HEALTH.

HOWEVER, we sincerely encourage you to bring your family to Magnuson Park for self-guided exploration of the Children’s Garden and park natural areas. Fresh air and nature is good medicine for body and soul, yet please maintain social distancing during the entire time you are in the park, to keep yourself and others healthy- thanks

 

Join us for a Sunday morning Wetlands Walk, led by Beavers Northwest staff, Seattle Audubon Master Birders, Children’s Garden volunteers, and a special guest expert on Pacific NW fungi!

 

Now that the colorful leaves are drifting down from the trees in the wetlands, it’s much easier to see the dams, lodge, cut saplings, and other “handiwork” that Magnuson’s resident beavers have been working on all year.  You’ll be amazed!

 

It’s also a fabulous time to see the annual fall “explosion” of mushrooms and other fungi that spring up along the wetland trails.  You’ll see beautiful shelf fungi on downed logs, puffballs poking up through the wood chip mulch, many mushroom species, and more.  Our special guest expert will help you learn fun facts and identification skills all along the way!

 

The start location for this walk is the sidewalk trail next to the Magnuson Boat Launch, which is just off Lake Shore Drive. The whole walk will be on level, crushed-rock paths.

Parking available along the edges of E-1 or E-2 parking lots.  No pre-registration necessary.
