Wild Things is for the young at heart, designed especially for parents with children 6 years of age and under. Explore a different park each month every Friday from 9:30am–11:00am.
Discover nature through your child’s eyes as we explore nature at their pace, searching for animal evidence and signs of the season. Nurture a sense of wonder as we explore every nook and cranny with our senses. Adults learn which native plants (and berries!) are safe to eat and discover the difference between a Douglas Fir and a Grand Fir. Our pace is slow and we explore all kinds of trails, so it is best suited for parents who wear their babies, children who are experienced walkers or have parents willing to carry them over the rough bits. Strollers are not advised unless indicated. Parents are responsible for their children and their safety at all times. No pets, please.
Registration is not necessary. $5 per person. Wild Whatcom Walks nature education programs are solely supported by your donations. We are a local non-profit organization devoted to exploring nature in your neighborhood. Pay as you go or purchase a punch card for $25.
Wild Things Season Passes! For our dedicated explorers, we now offer pre-paid season passes so you no longer have to worry about remembering to bring payment in hand every Friday. Please visit our registration page to sign up.
March: Whatcom Falls Park
(Scudder Pond entrance this week)
Fridays from 9:30 AM - 11 AM
Listen in to the spring songs of the birds and frogs as they advertise for a mate. Let's see who's singing which song to whom and see what the beavers had for dinner! We're sure to find a few signs of spring along this trail though one of our favorite parks. Dress extra warmly and in waterproof clothing, it is spring time weather out there. Trail is stroller friendly.
Please bring a simple healthy snack to share.
Meet the Wild Things on the trail near the intersection of Alabama St and Electric Ave. Google Map. Check back here for meeting place changes, as this park is BIG and we like to meet in different places.
Look for the Wild Whatcom Walks sign.
