Amazing place to walk around , and learn more about the wildlife. Take your camera ! This is a hidden place but just across from Nisqually wildlife park.
First, this is not the same place as the NIsqually Wildlife Refuge! It's a little hard to find, but once you get there it's a pretty spot and at low tide you can see lots of wading birds. It consists of a building with displays inside, long pier that I think may be closed off, and a stretch of rocky/muddy... 更多
Kayaking here is beautiful but try to time your trip to paddle in the same direction in the same direction as the tide. The current is very strong! There's a path for hiking that wanders through the reach with remarkable views of the sun, the Sound, and the mountains. Birds are plentiful and you will most likely see eagles and... 更多
At the mouth of McAllister Creek sits the Nisqually Reach Wildlife Center. This center is open Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday noon to 5 PM and is great place to take kids or just to visit on your own. The building served as a residence and boat house for a boat rental operation years ago but that was before my time.... 更多
The best public place to put down a scope for birding in Thurston County hands down. Great place for public boat launch as well,
This place has so much information about Puget Sound and great hands on teaching stations it is just wonderful. Great for kids and adults. Right on the water, you can even see whales! Really hard to find, got lost several times, but don't give up will worth it.
Just to be clear this is not The Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. While it is in the same general location of the south sound, if you were trying to go walking at the refuge you will need to drive between them. The research center provides classroom activities for field trips and has four tidal pools so you can learn about life... 更多
I've been here many times, over many years. This is a great place for families to stop & eat a picnic, stretch your legs or just let the kids run off steam when driving between Portland & Seattle. Bring your camera. It has never looked the same way twice.
Great walking area. If you love birds this is the place for you. There are many birding groups that visit the refuge. You can walk their walkway out to the Sound. There are several trails. I believe the walking part of the refuge is approximately five miles. There is an interesting center were you pay or can buy a yearly... 更多
