Nature Walks for Beginning Birders
Join Eastside Audubon for a birding walk in this lovely park on the shores of Lake Washington. Led by a Juanita Bay Park Ranger who is also a member of Eastside Audubon, we will have a relaxed walk and look for any birds in the area. We'll observe turtles in season from the west boardwalk and perhaps catch a glimpse of beavers near the long east boardwalk.
The walk takes place on the third Tuesday of every month, starting at 9 a.m. October through March and at 8 a.m. April through September, and ending by noon. Bring binoculars and meet in the parking lot. We welcome non-members, beginning birders, and anyone who just wants to take a pleasant walk. There is no fee.

Paved walking/jogging trails
Boardwalks over the wetlands and viewing platforms to observe nature
