The Adopt A Stream folks are offering to kick this wet June down the road with a celebration to end "Junuary."
The highlight of this ceremony is a summer nature walk to welcome July and warmer and dryer days.
This "Summer Nature Walk" starts at 10 a.m. Friday at the NW Stream Center in McCollum Park, 600 128th St., Everett.
The nature walk is for kids of all ages and when you are through, you will be shown how to press leaves so you can keep them for future reference and identification.
To help identify plants on the walk, naturalist Tom Noland along with Lori Powlas will introduce all sorts of new skills throughout the wetlands at the NW Stream Center and the forest trails in McCollum Park. In addition to plant identification, you will learn the plant's value to fish and wildlife and traditional American Indian uses of those plants.
If you get hungry along the way, no problem. This walk provides you with snacking opportunities such as nibbling on salmonberry, huckleberry and thimbleberry while learning about other edible native plants.
The nature walk might include birds and other wildlife.
Call 425-316-8592 to register. Cost is $5 for Adopt A Stream Foundation members and $7 for nonmembers.
