Every summer Discovery Park runs a shuttle bus to the beach to handle crowds on weekends.
Starting tomorrow and running through Saturday the 21st, Seattle will be hosting its second Wildlife in the City Week. The events are sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation in partnership with Seattle Parks and Recreation and several other local organizations.
Supposedly there are events being held all week at various venues around the city, but unfortunately, whoever is in charge of the Wildlife in the City Week website has dropped the ball and it hasn’t been updated with any event details except for a brief mention of the festival that wraps up the week.
Fortunately, I know of two events taking place on Saturday the 21st because I follow Heron Habitat Helpers on Facebook.
From 1-5 pm several organizations will be participating in the Wildlife Festival at the Discovery Park Learning Center with lots of fun and educational activities.
From 2-4 pm Heron Habitat Helpers will have telescopes set up at Commodore Park for anyone who wants to come by and get a good look at the great blue heron nests in the rookery. HHH volunteers will also be on hand to answer all your burning questions about these fabulous birds.
