Summer Saturdays: Arrowhead Point (Saint Edward State Park)

August 24 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

 

Arrowhead Point is a 6.5 acre expansion of Saint Edward Park and is one of our region’s greatest nature walks.

We’ll hike (roughly 3 miles, round-trip) to the park’s latest addition and savor its old forest, quiet streams and natural shoreline. We’ll talk about the surprising variety of animals – including bobcat, flying squirrel and river otter – that use the site. We’ll meet an uncommon (though native) tree species that provides food and homes for many wild animals. And we’ll learn how much patience, persistence and collaboration are needed to protect nature in a popular suburban area.

Summer Saturdays walks are led by Gary Mozel, a naturalist and professional interpreter.

All three Summer Saturdays events will be led by Gary Mozel, naturalist and professional interpreter. Gary has been a naturalist for over 50 years and has worked for the Washington State Parks, the National Park Service, various Audubon Societies, Smithsonian Associates and Woodland Park Zoo. He has led nature walks, and tours in such far-flung places as the Olympic Mountains, coastal Alaska, eastern Oregon, tropical Australia and southern Kenya.

More than just a walk in the woods, Gary will unveil nature’s hidden inhabitants by showing us what to hear and look for. Which of the hundreds of birds are year-round residents and who is just passing through. Come learn what is special about each of the landscapes that are under Forterra’s care and the story of how they became protected for everyone to enjoy. Bring your camera, binoculars, friends and families!

Note: For the purposes of nature watching please leave your pets at home – thank you!
