Two hikes for the price of one!  We will start at Watershed Park and do the 1.5 mile loop and then drive to nearby Tumwater Falls to do the 1.0 mile loop.  Kids will play Nature Bingo during the activity.  Good hike for families with kids 4 and up though younger kids  are certainly welcome with parental assistance.  This will be a late morning activity (meet time of 11... spot will be confirmed with sign up participants.)
