The Cedar River Watershed Education Center is 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.
