It's the peak of the nesting season, so we'll be on the lookout for nests and baby birds. We’ll also be watching (and listening!) for zipping hummingbirds, chattering kingfishers, and soaring eagles.
Kids will learn from an Eastside Audubon expert about the variety of birds that use habitats ranging from lakeshore to streamside to woodland.
Enter through the park gate on Sammamish Road and meet in the northwest corner of the parking lot by 10 a.m. No park fee or Discover Pass required on this special date.
Suitable for children 5 and older. Paths are easy and level, and you can leave the walk at any point. Dress for the weather, and bring binoculars (if you have them) and water.
