A guided family birding walk at Lake Sammamish State Park and a lively talk by an accomplished 13-year-old birder will show kids and grown-ups the excitement of discovering the natural world through bird watching.

Both events are free, and Eastside Audubon welcomes everyone in the community to attend either one or both.

An easy walk on maintained trails and walkways with master birder Andy McCormick will explore the many habitats of Lake Sammamish State Park. Woodlands, streamside, lakeshore and meadow attract a variety of birds this season. Expect to see (and hear!) colorful songbirds and woodpeckers, Great Blue Herons, Bald Eagles, goofy American Coots and many others.
