  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Come enjoy observing all aspects of the natural world with a specific focus on 35+ species of birds, both year-round residents and neotropical migrants that are frequently seen in Wallace Swamp Creek Park (19851 73rd Avenue NE, Kenmore).

Nature walks will occur on the first Monday of each month at 9 a.m. through Oct. 6. Participants should check the city website,, the day prior to the nature walk just in case the walk is canceled due to weather or to instructor absence. This activity is courtesy of volunteer instructor Linda Phillips.

Linda Phillips is a long-time Kenmore resident who has spent many years enjoying, observing and learning about the birds of Wallace Swamp Creek Park. A lifelong nature lover, her interest in birds has grown over the past 10 years, during which she has studied Wallace Swamp Creek Park birds and identified over 100 species of birds on her many walks through the park.

She has been a long-time volunteer as an advisor and guest speaker for Kenmore Elementary School Eco-Cubs after-school program and enjoys sharing her knowledge and love for the birds of Wallace Swamp Creek Park with others.
Dress for the weather and wear sturdy footwear for a 1.5 to 2 hour walk over 2 miles of paved and primitive trails through the 25-acres of Wallace Swamp Creek Park. Bring binoculars to better view the birds and other wildlife. Insect repellent is suggested for walks during the summer months.
