Shine Tidelands State Park and Wolfe Property Walk

On April 15, 2017, Jefferson Land Trust Land Steward Marcia Schwendiman joined our Natural History Society for a springtime walk along the beach and into the woods on Bywater Bay.

Bywater Bay is near the west end of the Hood Canal Bridge. The three-mile route followed the beach to the neck of Hood Head, then, on the walk back, dived through a wooded area to a saltmarsh and lagoon marking the end of Bywater Bay. A wide array of birds made an appearance, and the gravel to mud beach offered near shore sea life to investigate.

We suggested wearing light hiking boots and layers, and bringing water, snack/lunch, binoculars, and field guides. There was no limit to the size of the group.

Lee at jltnatural@saveland.org was the contact for carpool information and other details.
