Naturalists to lead tour of Narbeck wetlands
The walk and talk is planned from 10 a.m. to noon.
The wetland is a major part of the headwaters of Narbeck Creek, a small salmon stream that flows into Puget Sound. The 50-acres is located just north of the Paine Field airport and Boeing's Everett plant, 7007 Seaway Boulevard Everett.
There is a 1.5 mile perimeter trail and an "inner trail" on the boardwalk that is .3-miles long. This tour will focus on the inner loop -- an easy stroll for anyone.
Along the boardwalk, there is an observation blind in the shape of a giant beaver lodge where people will be able to see wildlife on an adjacent pond.
Tom Noland, a zoologist, and Sarah Noland, a biologist, will teach talk about the habits and habitat requirements of the critters in the wetlands.
