Take a Walk on the Wildside

At the Narbeck Wetland Sancturary

On Saturday, May 24, from 10am to noon, you can "take a walk on the wild side" and explore the wetlands at the headwaters of Narbeck Creek. Join Naturalist Tom and Sarah Noland who will guide you on boardwalks around the Narbeck Wetland Sanctuary and teach you about its unique history and all of the plants and animals that use this beautiful place.

The wetland is a major part of the headwaters of Narbeck Creek, a small salmon stream that flows into Puget Sound. This excellent 50-acre slice of nature is located just north of the Paine Field airport and Boeing's Everett plant. There is a 1.5 mile perimeter trail and an "inner trail" on the boardwalk that is .3-miles long. This tour will will focus on the inner loop...an easy "walk or roll" for anyone.

Along the boardwalk, there is a nice observation blind in the shape of a giant beaver lodge where you will be able to see wildlife on an adjacent pond (it's fun inside for kids of all ages).
