Snoqualmie Valley Trail


Naturalist Trip - Stillwater Natural Area

Enjoy a morning stroll on an old railroad bed as we view this wetland area searching for birds. Bird spring migrants have arrived and have started to breed and others might be passing through. Our focus is on birds but we will see flowering plants and trees too.

Meet at 8:00 am in the parking lot just  a quarter mile west from the Stillwater  store along SR 203.


The goal is to walk and view the landscape together to locate birds.  Sharing our knowledge and skills  will make us more successful. We will spend approximately 3 hours walking at a leisurely pace stopping often to view and identify birds.  Bring binoculars and a spotting  scope if you have one. Also bring a bird book or a bird app such as Merlin to aid in identification. 

There is no toilet here so be sure to use nearby facilities  before arriving.

The trail may have puddles and muddy areas  so bring appropirate footware.
