The tall timber and trails of 482-acre Bridle Trails State Park will be explored on Saturday, May 4, during the Bridle Trails Park Foundation’s first nature walk of 2012.
The foundation's walks are a great way to get to know the large swath of greenery bordering Kirkland, and this one will be lead by Botanist Clay Antieau, the knowledgeable former president of the Washington Native Plant Society.
He will no doubt point out some of the park’s natural curiosities, such as the pretty native orchid known as coral root and the rare Vancouver Island ground cone, which is known in King County only in the park.
For a good description of the nature walks, see a previous Kirkland Patch story by clicking here.
The walk is from 9 a.m. to noon, with the group meeting in the parking lot at Ben Franklin Elementary School, 12434 NE 60th St, Kirkland. For details, see the attached PDF file.
