Spending Summer evenings outside is one of the best parts of being a Washingtonian. But how often do you spend that time observing how the plants and animals are enjoying the warm evenings and late sunsets? Join IslandWood and King County at the Brightwater Center on August 13th for an evening exploring our ponds. These aren’t places we just visit for relaxation; humans are an important part of the ecosystem too! We’ll use the watery ecosystems we protect here at Brightwater to show how we share these places with plants, birds, mammals, and insects. Get ready to use art, science, and exploration to understand who else enjoys a warm, Washington summer evening.
Adult participation is expected. We want families to learn and work together! Although this event is recommended for families with youth ages 6-12, we are open to all ages. Please make a decision about your child’s ability to participate based on the following information: This event involves walking off trail, walking in muddy ground, drawing and using paints, looking at identification guides, using microscopes, and exploring safely near water.
