First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Oct 5 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society

Mushroom Walk @ 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly St. trailhead
Oct 5 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Saturday, October 5th
10 am – noon

Kim Traverse, past president of the Puget Sound Mycological Society, will guide us through our West Duwamish Greenbelt hunting and identifying mushrooms! October is an excellent time to find mushrooms growing wild in our West Seattle forests. All ages are welcome. Please wear sturdy footwear and be prepared for the elements.

We will meet at the 14th Avenue SW and SW Holly Street trailhead, which can be accessed from Metro route 125.

Lifelong Recreation: Practicing Gentleness in Every Chapter of Your Life @ High Point Community Center
Oct 12 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites anyone 50+ to join in this Lifelong Recreation event. Increasing the awareness for self-care is the goal for this practice. Practicing healthy self-care is the first step in becoming a healthier caregiver for our family and friends.

On the day, we’ll concentrate on cultivating four areas of gentleness practice:

  1. Seeing: Emotional Clarity:  Increasing your self-awareness through paying attention to physical and emotional expressions in your everyday life
  2. Hearing: Genuine Communication:  Connecting your head and heart to practice gentleness
  3. Feeling: Authentic Confidence:  Practicing gentleness through resolving conflicts between your head and heart
  4. Reality Check: Practicing gentleness to be part of your daily routine.

The event is scheduled to be led by Laura Tsang, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.


Lifelong Recreation programs focus on physical activity, social engagement, education, arts, creativity, and healthy lifestyles. Recreational programs are designed to serve adults of all abilities–those who are physically active, those who are just becoming active, and those who have age-related limitations. Lifelong Recreation programs are aimed at increasing individual health and wellness while fostering a stronger, healthier community. Many of our participants boast about completing a half marathon each year, making meaningful social connections, losing weight, increasing flexibility and balance, and traveling to regional destinations. Join the fun if you’re 50+!

Tinkergarten Free Trial @ Lincoln Park

At Tinkergarten, families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. In this free trial class, Tinkergarten Leader, Alison Arnote, will facilitate an expert-designed play scenario, allowing children of various ages and needs to explore, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and create together. Parents and caregivers learn, too, as we share insight into your child’s development.

This trial class is:

  • Designed for children ages 18 months-8 years. Child/children are accompanied by an adult. Siblings of any other age are most welcome.
  • Limited to the first 15 families who register.

Kids may get a bit messy (Hurrah!), so please send them in clothing that can get dirty.
