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

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.

This event also kicks off our Presidential primary organizing activities.

Did you know that PCO engagement leads to a 5-point increase in voter turnout? And that we’ve got 1,000 vacant PCO positions across King County? The increased turnout had those been filled would have passed I-1000 with 20,000 votes to spare. One of our top priorities in 2020 will be to recruit and train PCOs to make sure we’ve got the votes needed come November…and beyond. Our kick-off party is your chance to invest in our shared vision for a more equitable, just, and inclusive world.

In honor of our county’s namesake, this event is a perfect way to kick off MLK Day Weekend and ring in the New Year. Friends, family, and children are welcome. Click here to purchase your tickets today (3 ticket levels available) with Early Bird Discount ending December 30th.
