Discover which wildlife communities live within Seattle’s largest protected watershed – the source of most of our drinking water.

WHEN:   Wednesday, December 28, 10 am – 3 pm 

All-day presentations and activities:

– Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Karelian Bear Dogs: Meet the dogs who keep wild animals in the wild!

– Family nature walks: Rattlesnake Lake shore exploration.

– Wildlife craft activities: bird feeders, animal tracks, clay sculpture—and more!

– Examine owl pellets and discover what was for breakfast.

WHERE: The Cedar River Watershed Education Center, just east of North Bend (32 miles from downtown Seattle).

DIRECTIONS: From I-90 going east, take Exit 32 (436th Avenue SE). Turn right at the end of the off-ramp. Follow the road (436th Avenue SE/Cedar Falls Road SE) for about 3.5 miles. The Cedar River Watershed Education Center will be on the right, just past Rattlesnake Lake.
