Kayak Academy is taking registrations for its annual spring nature tour along the shores of Lake Sammamish.

A professional kayak guide leads the two-hour tour along the shores of Lake Sammamish and up a portion of Issaquah Creek. During the tour, a state park ranger will present an on-the-water program about the great blue heron.

In addition to the herons, participants frequently see a variety of waterfowl and raptors, such as bald eagles and red-tailed hawks. Spotting scopes will be available for land-based bird viewing, but participants are encouraged to bring their own binoculars to view birds from the water.

The tours are from noon to 3 p.m. March 17 and 24 at Lake Sammamish State Park, 2000 N.W. Sammamish Road, Issaquah.
