We will meet at the preserve at 1:30 and be done by about 4:30.  More detailed information will be emailed 2 days beforehand.

We will be working with the Capital Land Trust Education coordinator to survey the restoration of the native Garry Oaks. After a group snack we will take a bird identification walk, followed by an exploration of the tidelands at a great low tide.

This is appropriate for elementary and older and can be counted for service hours by older kids.
