Bird & Plant Walks

Birds, plants, and more!

Take a guided walk at Seahurst Park while learning about the birds and plants around you. Both have evolved together and play important roles in the health of local watersheds, as well as the mental health of people. Naturalists will share identification tips, species adaptations, and the importance of providing native habits. These fun programs are sponsored by the City of Burien to connect the community with our shared watershed to build appreciation and stewardship of birds and our native plants.

No prior knowledge is required. These small outings are geared towards ages 13 years and up.

Fall 2023 Schedule

Bird & Plant Walk

October 9: 10:00 AM-12:00 PM

This interactive, guided walk is designed to give beginning to avid birders a chance to explore and learn together. We will start with an introduction on how to properly use binoculars and give tips for identing birds by both sight and sound. Bring your own binoculars or borrow one of our pairs!

Bird Watching Partners
