Wild Tacoma: Multi-Stop Nature Mania with Brenda

FREE for all ages and trip number 3 of 3 for Tahoma Audubon's summer field trip series

Experience wildlife across a wide range of environments with Brenda of the Slater Museum in this drop-in / drop-out style field trip!

This trip includes a morning bird-watching hike at Swan Creek, a tour of the Slater Museum of Natural History, an urban nature walk in the North End of Tacoma, and drinks at Peaks and Pints at the end of the day.

All ages are welcome for most of the stops, but no children under age 10 are allowed at the Slater Museum and no one under 21 is allowed at the bar at the end of the day. 

We'll provide binoculars if you'd like to borrow a pair.
