Boeing Creek Interpretive Plant Walk

Join Washington Native Plant Society Steward, Ginger Hayra Gunn in a City of Shoreline WALKS program. Enjoy and explore one of Shoreline's greatest treasures... its wild contours and green inhabitants.

The first half-hour will be on fairly level ground, then it turns into a hearty adventure (but with lot of stops) to learn about the wealth of pre-European species and the intruders that threaten them (as well as threatening the fauna).

Sturdy hiking shoes and a water bottle recommended. Trails are uneven and rugged.
Kids (with parents) and teens are encouraged to attend this walk. Parental waiver required for youth under 18. No bathroom available.
Walk is approximately 2 miles / 2 hours, though we could go later, if everyone wants. Sundown is not until 9pm!
Walk Rating: Difficult (uneven ground, slippery when wet)

Meet at: Boeing Creek Park Entrance on NW 175th St. (between 6th Ave and 3rd Ave NW, by the Kiosk) There is street parking. on 3rd, 6th, and 175th. Only one mile from Aurora, but a LOT of turns!

Directions:
  • West from Aurora on 175th.
  • Left at the first light onto Fremont.
  • Right at first stop sign (heading west again).
  • Right at first stop sign again (north on Dayton)
  • Hairpin left turn in front of St Luke's at the bottom of the hill
  • Right immediately... finally onto 175th again (Whew!)
  • Boeing Creek park is on your left in about a half of a mile, when you get to 3rd NW.

Educational material will be available to take home.
