Fall Nature Walk at the Northwest Stream Center

Sep 13, 2013
Zoologist Tom Noland will guide you through the forest next to the Northwest Stream Center on Thursday, Sept. 19.

It's been a warm September, but it’s cooling down at night, rain and mist are showing up on weather forecasts, and leaves are beginning to turn color... fall is coming!

At 10 a.m. Thursday Sept. 19, you can enjoy a change of the season walk around the edges of wetlands, go over a bridge crossing a salmon stream called North Creek, and wander on trails through a beautiful forest next to the Northwest Stream Center in Snohomish County’s McCollum Park located at 600 – 128th Street SE, Everet.

Naturalists Lori Powlas and Tom Noland, who is also a zoologist, will be your guides.  They will help you identify all the native plants along the way and explain their importance to fish, wildlife, and people.

You will leave this event knowing how Native Americans used our local plants. You will also identify a few native plants that you may want to add to your menu and medicine cabinet as well.

This Fall Nature Walk at the Northwest Stream Center is geared to first graders to adults.

Pre-registration is required by calling the Adopt A Stream Foundation at 425-316-8592; $5 for members, $7 for non-members.  Proceeds benefit Streamkeeper Academy.
