Longfellow Creek Watershed Walk
When: Saturday, October 13, 2012 from 1 pm to 3 pm
Where: Meet at Longfellow Creek P-Patch at 25th Avenue SW and SW
What: Join Feet First Watershed Walks Ambassador Bryan Fiedorczyk on an urban hike through one of Seattle’s most beautiful watershed environments. The Longfellow Creek Watershed drains almost 3000 acres of West Seattle, and is one of only four waterways left in Seattle which flows freely year-round. While walking the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail with Bryan, you will see wetlands, native meadows, conifer forests, a beaver dam, and large-scale public art installations. This walk will also demonstrate how Seattle residents’ everyday activities can impact the natural environment in their own backyards, and what you can do to help preserve the health of our urban watersheds. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for salmon!

All walking participants will receive a free Feet First Watershed Walks Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail Walking Map. This is a family friendly walk. Space is limited, reserve your spot today!
As a part of the launch of In Motion, individuals are invited to attend fun and engaging walks focused on the intersection between the built and natural environments in their community. The West Seattle Walks Series steps out with the first walk beginning on Saturday, October 6.
Join Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors Chas Redmond, Bryan Fiedorczyk, and Cathy and Jake Jaramillo on guided walks that will inspire, connect, and inform participants about unique features in West Seattle. Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors help promote safer, more walkable communities by leading neighborhood walks inviting groups to connect with their surroundings and share knowledge while improving personal and environmental health. The first two walks in the series will educate walk participants about the natural ecology of the Fauntleroy and Longfellow Creek Watersheds while taking time to enjoy the beautiful natural environment and wildlife that inhabits it. The third walk in this series gives participants a bird’s eye view of West Seattle’s beautiful landscapes from the tops of Alki’s outdoor stairways.
Feet First Executive Director Lisa Quinn said, “The Neighborhood Walks provide an enjoyable opportunity for people to learn about the relationship between their actions and a healthy environment and vibrant neighborhood. Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors share their knowledge and experiences of the natural and built environments with their neighbors in a different, more intimate way.”
These West Seattle Walks are a collaborative effort by Feet First and InMotion.
