Tinkergarten Lantern Walk @ Lincoln Park
Nov 3 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Tinkergarten‘s Lantern Walk is designed to help kids big and small welcome and see the beauty in the darkness at the end of Daylight Saving time (aka “Fall back”). For our family and yours, we hope it becomes a magical, annual tradition. At the very least, it’s a chance to be out in the wild at night!

On the evening of the event, families will gather before dusk, sing songs, light lanterns, and enjoy an outdoor walk in the park. Simple and lovely. This event is free and open to all who register.

Sign up at https://tinkergarten.com/classes/115572.

Winter Wander Along Longfellow Creek @ Camp Long
Dec 8 @ 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Fall nature outings are open for registration now!  Sign up for the popular nighttime walks, bird tours, mushroom walks, and so much more…

Winter Wander Along Longfellow Creek at Camp Long.

Longfellow Creek is a major waterway in West Seattle. It is also a little piece of the wild in the middle of the city. Coho salmon migrate up this waterway; beavers build dams and lodges on this creek; owls hunt for food along this artery. Explore a portion of this urban wilderness with a Seattle Urban Nature Guide. Look for seasonal changes and get to know some of your wild neighbors.

Be prepared to do some hiking over uneven terrain on this program.

Ages 6 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Everyone attending the program must be registered.

Meet the leader at the Camp Long Lodge.
