Come explore the beautiful Magnuson Wetlands Complex to celebrate International Migratory Bird Day!
Saturday May 9th from 10 am- 11:30 am
Join us as we watch and listen for songbirds, frogs, dragonflies, and other wildlife as they begin to move around the wetlands, foraging for food and calling to one another. Each month brings dramatic changes to the Magnuson Wetlands’ plant, animal, and bird life, and there always seem to be a few surprises in store. You’ll be amazed by the bounty of wildlife that live in this beautiful natural area, including our new resident beavers!

We keep a pace that is comfortable for children, and we provide binoculars and other exploration supplies for all children and adults. All ages are welcome!
