Field Tour of the Tarboo Watershed with Northwest Watershed Institute

Great Blue Heron

Join the Natural History Society on Tuesday, August 20, for an all-day tour of the Tarboo Watershed with Peter Bahls, biologist and Director of Northwest Watershed Institute. The Institute and many project partners have been implementing one of the largest landscape-scale conservation projects in Puget Sound.

We will explore from the headwaters of Tarboo Creek to spectacular Dabob Bay, stopping to take short walks to see a diversity of wildlife, stream, forest, and shoreline habitats, and a full spectrum of land protection and restoration projects.
