Morning can be a bustling time in nature, and you can catch the rhythm with the “Wetlands Wakeup” nature walk at Magnuson Park.
“We’ll be hearing the resident Pacific Chorus Frogs ‘singing’ as part of their courtship, seeing our year-round-resident ducks and songbirds, seeing the last of the winter visitors such as Northern Shovelers and Buffleheads, plus welcoming shorebirds that pass through on their spring migration,” says nature educator Emily Bishton.
The walk, which includes time for exploring wetland pond water samples, will last from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, and begins at the Magnuson Central Wetlands entry, in parking lot E-5. The pace is kid-friendly. It costs $3 per person or $7 per family. Register by calling 206-684-7026.
