Lakes and Parks of Federal Way & Vicinity

LEADER: Steve Johnson

Steve will be taking us on his always popular excursion to visit some of the many lakes and ponds in Federal Way, where we will seek uncommon to rare ducks. We will also look for songbirds and seabirds in the Fife and Redondo areas. Since this takes place in early March we'll be looking and listening for early migrants along the way. We may walk up to a mile.

Bring: Binoculars, lunch, hot or cold drinks, warm clothes. Scopes are welcome. Meet: 8:00AM at the Star Lake Park & Ride north of Federal Way. Folks who wish to leave early may do so. We'll form carpools accordingly.

Directions: Take I-5 to Exit 147 north of Federal Way at S 272nd St. Turn to west and proceed. Park & Ride will be on your right. Turn right at light at 26th Ave S, then right again into P&R and head to the north side.

LEADERS: Jay Galvin and Barbara Petersen

Come with us, Jay and Barbara, as we explore the winter fields of the Enumclaw Plateau for Trumpeter Swans, eagles, geese, sparrows, and thrushes, just to name a few.

We will meet at the Park and Ride lot located on the Auburn-Black Diamond Road. Take Hwy. 18 East and take the SE Auburn- Black Diamond exit. The Park and ride is to the right.

Travelling up to the Green River valley, we will keep our eyes open for birds in the trees and pastures. We will leave the valley before Flaming Geyser State Park and enter the plateau from the north.

We should be done birding by Noon and head back to the Park and Ride. Bring binoculars, food, and proper clothing.
