For those who enjoy exploring the natural outdoors and meeting new friends, there will be free guided nature walks at Wallace Swamp Creek in Kenmore starting May 21.
From 9-11 a.m. on the third Tuesday of each month, these tours will be guided by city of Kenmore volunteer leader Linda Phillips. The tours will run through October.
The nature walk explores two miles of paved and primitive trails through the 25 acres of the park. In the past, Phillips has taught groups about flourishing crops of oyster mushrooms, fresh deer tracks and several nesting birds, among other things.
Tours start at 9 a.m. at the kiosk at Wallace Swamp Creek Park parking lot, 19851 73rd Ave. NE. Sign-in and registration will take place the morning of each tour. Participants younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent.
Tour dates are May 21, June 18, July 16, Aug. 20, Sept. 17 and Oct. 15.
