Salmon: Kings of Carkeek

November 9, 2013 @ 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Free

Meet the mighty kings of Piper’s Creek in Carkeek Park. Discover the lifecycle of the Pacific salmon, the hurdles they overcome to return to their home streams and why they’re so essential to keeping our forests beautiful and thriving.

This two-hour nature walk, sponsored by the Seattle Volunteer Naturalists program, offers visitors the unique opportunity to observe an urban salmon run firsthand. During the walk, you’ll explore the riparian ecosystem in one of the city’s most popular parks as you’re guided through the history of humanity’s evolving relationship with the Pacific salmon and the future of this iconic keystone species.

This walk is free and family-friendly! Be sure to wear weather appropriate clothing and footwear, and come prepared to enjoy a gently-paced guided walk through the forests and meadows of Carkeek Park.

Please register in advance online, or by calling 206-386-4237.
