11:00am and 1:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays

Our guided nature hikes take about 90 minutes and follow the Sauk-Skagit Reach trail in Howard Miller Steelhead Park. These interpretive walks focus on eagles, salmon, and their interconnected relationships within the Skagit River watershed. The Guided Nature Hikes are offered at 11:00am and 1:30pm every Saturday and Sunday. The mostly flat terrain is suitable for small children and older adults. Please dress according to the weather.

Please do not bring your dog along on the Guided Nature Hike out of consideration of others and wildlife.

Both the Guided Hikes and Presentations are free and open to the public. A donation to our organization would be greatly appreciated.
