Natural History & Conservation Walk

June 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Description

Have you ever wondered what processes shaped the Snoqualmie Valley and the hills and river courses of Western Washington? Do you wonder what our landscape looked like before Europeans settled here, or how a forest recovers from disturbances like logging or fire? Come join Matt Distler Ph.D, Oxbow’s Conservation Manager, for a walk in the woods and a trip through time. We’ll see evidence of past land use, learn native plants that tell a story about their place in the world, and consider the ways that our own land stewardship directs the future of this beautiful valley.

The terrain will be flat, but somewhat uneven; water-resistant, mud-friendly shoes are recommended. This trip is suitable for beginning (and beyond!) nature enthusiasts as well as families with older children. We recommend that children be 8 years of age or older. 

The walk is limited to 20 people. Specific meeting location and day-of contact information will be shared once registered. Stay for the Oxbow Saturday festivities afterwards!
