Come to free Family Birding Walk at Lake Sammamish State Park on Saturday

September 27, 2013

NEW — 6 a.m. Sept. 27, 2013

Celebrate the arrival of fall with a family birding walk at Lake Sammamish State Park from 10 a.m. to noon.

The leaves will be dressed in their fall finery, and the ducks and waterfowl will be back on the lake. Look up when you hear the call of geese flying overhead and listen for Pacific wrens in the nearby bushes.

John Tubbs, a well-known birder and nature photographer, will lead the walk, but you can leave whenever your children want to, according to a press release from Eastside Audubon. Bring water and snacks, and dress for the weather.

Meet just inside the main entrance of the park, at 2000 N.W. Sammamish Road, and take the first left into the large parking lot and meet at the northeast end.

It’s a free day at the state parks: No Discover Pass is needed. No pre-registration or fee is required for the guided walk.
