Going Native Wednesday Series ��� Take a Walk on Seattle���s Wild Side -

In this Going Native Series I invite you to stroll the shorelines of Salmon Bay with me, where the city meets the sound. Roads, paths, and bridges take you on a journey of discovery along this captivating urban wildlife corridor ��� the shores of Salmon Bay, the plants, trees and beyond.

Even though bulkheads, boat locks, and urban growth crowd the waterfront, we will walk through inspiring community projects and parks which are either done or underway to protect and enhance the last remnants of healthy habitat around Salmon Bay.


There���s no mystery to how Salmon Bay got its name: hundreds of thousands of salmon swim through here every year! From the rare and beautiful steelhead to the largest run of sockeye in the lower 48 states, from the threatened Chinook (King) to the silvery coho, you can witness this amazing migration from March to October.

Salmon Bay is a rich estuary where fresh water merges with salt water. Despite human intervention that has highly altered the estuary, Salmon Bay shelters a multitude of birds, mammals, and insects in addition to salmon and other fish.

Look around ��� and we may see bald eagles and sea lions feasting on salmon, great blue herons hunting for fish, and, looking very closely, juvenile salmon hiding, feeding and growing in the shallow tidelands. Let us witness together the waterfront web of life here at Salmon Bay!

Points on this series are:
��� Golden Gardens
��� Ballard locks fish ladder and Hiram Chittenden Botanical Gardens (parking fee)
��� Kiwanis Ravine on Wolfe Creek. Secluded path to the bridge to see Seattle���s largest heronry.
��� Discovery Park

**** more points maybe added at any time so keep a eye out for changes!
