Summer Saturdays: Hazel Wolf Wetlands Preserve – sold out

July 20 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


The walk at 11 am is Sold Out – Register here for the 2 pm walk

One of the highest-quality wetlands in the Greater Seattle Area, Hazel Wolf is a wonderland of ponds, marshes and forests. Because it protects both woodlands and wetlands, it boasts a huge variety of plants (more than 150 species), plus fascinating animals ranging from red-winged blackbirds to rough-skinned newts.

We’ll walk the roughly 2 miles of flat trails, stopping often to observe nature and share “hidden stories” of the preserve’s residents. Which birds migrate here all the way from Central America every year? Which birds nest high up in tree cavities but find their food by diving into the pond? Have you ever seen a beaver dam THAT big?!? And who the heck WAS Hazel Wolf, anyway? Join us and find out.

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!
