Hikes, outings

Botanist Kathy leading an exploration of Cappy’s Trails in October 2018

We regularly schedule hikes and nature walks to take advantage of our beautiful surroundings. We’ve enjoyed outings to Rocky Brook Falls, Dosewallips State Park, Cappy’s Forest, Tamanowas Rock, Gardiner Lagoon, Quimper Wildlife Corridor, North Beach, the Tarboo Wildlife Preserve, the Duckabush River, the Dungeness River, Hurricane Ridge, Marmot Pass and Mt. Townsend.

We’ve been on a medicinal plant walk, a moss and fern walk, bird walks, wildflower walks, and mountain hikes. We’ve seen the salmon run at Chimacum Creek, we’ve identified bear tracks at the Duckabush River, and we’ve planted, weeded and cleared trails at various JLT properties.

Rain doesn’t stop intrepid naturalists from looking for insects at Gibbs Lake in September 2018.
