We will hike deep into the heart of the old-growth forest in Point Defiance Park, where we may see park wildlife.   At Owen Beach we'll plan to have lunch in the covered picnic area, and we may explore a bit to find marine animals such as Harbor Seals.  An optional visit to Point Defiance Zoo can also be included in the trip.  Be sure to bring a lunch, appropriate clothing for the weather, and the 10 essentials.
