Discover Your Wild Neighbors at Discovery Park

Project Description

Wildlife in the City Week
The National Wildlife Federation, in partnership with Seattle Parks and Recreation, Conservation Northwest, and other local organizations, is presenting the second annual Wildlife in the City Week. This multi-day, multi-venue event will help the community to explore and learn how we can all have a positive impact on wildlife living among us and become a champion of urban wildlife.
Discover Your Wild Neighbors
Our experiential events range from urban wildlife walks to hands-on activities with youth at community centers. The week will conclude with a Wildlife Festival on Saturday, April 21 from 1-5 pm at Discovery Park. Numerous nonprofit organization will share what people in urban areas can do to help animals specific to the Puget Sound, like river otters, salmon and bobcats, that need our protection.
The Wildlife in the City Festival at Discovery Park will host more than a dozen local environmental organizations and help people in urban areas connect with animals specific to the Puget Sound like river otters and bobcats that need our protection.
