    Trails and boardwalks meander through enhanced wetlands at the Narbeck Wetland Nature Preserve in Everett,

EVERETT -- Naturalists Tom and Sarah Noland will guide people this Saturday on the boardwalk around the Narbeck Wetland Nature Preserve and talk about the unique history and all of the plants and animals that use the place.
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.
Register by calling 425-316-8592*, $5 for Adopt A Stream Foundation members; $7 for non-members. Proceeds benefit Streamkeeper Academy.
