Wetlands Walkers is a self-guided program to help you reach your fitness goals while walking in the beauty and serenity of nature. Participants walk the trails in the Park, track mileage and earn rewards at milestones. Walk the trails with friends, family, or on your own. Each year, the program focuses on a different migratory species that migrates through the park. The goal of the program is for all participants to collectively walk the distance that the focus species migrates each year. Can you help us reach the goal? Sign up today at the Nature Center or via email.

Good walking shoes, hat, and water are a must. Camera and binoculars are a plus, because you never know what you might see in the park!

 

2020: Year of the Painted Lady!

The painted lady (Vanessa Cardui) is a familiar, orange and black butterfly. At first glance, it may appear to be a Monarch but it is smaller than its more famous migrating cousin. It inhabits backyards and meadows throughout most of the world, except Australia and Antarctica. North American painted ladies lay their eggs in the desert near the Mexican border and head to the Pacific Northwest annually. In spring, painted ladies fly low when migrating, usually only 6 to 12 feet above the ground. This makes them highly visible to butterfly watchers.

The Painted Lady can travel 1,750 miles in the fall and 1,750 miles in the spring, making this year's goal 3,500 miles total!
