Explore the Estuary

By Harbor WildWatch - Gig Harbor MacaroniKID June 16, 2024
Join Harbor WildWatch for a monthly workshop on the wild side! These tours will be paired with a monthly lesson that can be adapted for all ages. We will gather at 1 p.m. on the covered lookout deck near the restrooms at Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge before embarking on a 60-90-minute tour. Parking is $3 (cash) per vehicle.

Join us for an opportunity that engages all your senses to explore and appreciate the wonders of nature! Participants will embark on a guided adventure, using sight, sound, touch, smell, and maybe even taste to make detailed observations of the natural world. From the rustling of leaves and the scent of wildflowers to the texture of tree bark and the vibrant colors of spring, this hands-on experience will deepen your connection to the environment. Perfect for nature enthusiasts of all ages, this workshop promises to enhance your sensory awareness and inspire a newfound appreciation for the beauty around us.
