Upcoming Tacoma Nature Center at Snake Lake Events

January 12

Family Nature Walk - Swan Creek Park

Saturday, January 12 (10:00am - 11:00am)

Explore Tacoma's Parks during this free naturalist-led walk. Discover amazing plants and animals and how they adapt to the seasons. Walks are organized and led by Tacoma Nature Center staff.

Not recommended for strollers or children under 3. Pre-registration is required. These events are FREE but space is limited.

You may sign up online or by calling the Tacoma Nature Center at (253) 591-6439.

Please note that scouts from any organization are welcome on these walks, but they need to be in family groups, not in troops. We have special offerings for scout troops as the limited space on these family walks is reserved for family groups. Thank you for your cooperation!

Walks are free but space is limited.
Please sign up online to save your spot!
