Once again the Kayak Academy is offering a Nature Tour with the Lake Sammamish State Park Rangers!

We guide everyone over to the Heronry and the Rangers talk about Great Blue Heron's nesting and habitat. Bring your binoculars. On the way back we stop at Sunset Beach and walk to the field by the heronry and look at the nests through telescopes. Last year, we spotted a Bald Eagle sitting in the middle of the heronry and saw how the herons responded.

Rating: This trip is rated ?protected? or SK1. Suitable for anyone wanting to be introduced to kayaking or to just get out for a fun and informative tour.
