Hansville Greenway and Point No Point Nature Walk

salmonberryOn March 8, 2017, JLT Land Stewards Michele Olsen and Wendy Feltham Joined our Natural History Society for an almost-springtime walk through the Hansville Greenway.

The seven-mile route followed country roads to the historic Point No Point Lighthouse.  It continued through beautiful Buck Lake County Park and the Hansville Greenway trails.  In addition to meadow, pond and lake, there is a 28-acre wetland behind the lighthouse keeper’s quarters.

An alternative three and one-half mile walk takes you to the wetland area with an opportunity for birding. The park is a designated Important Bird Area on Audubon Washington’s Great Washington State Birding Trail.
