Dust off your walking shoes because our Step Into Nature (SIN) Series is kicking off with a wonderful excursion to the Theler Wetlands. Located at the head of Hood Canal, Theler Wetlands has miles of walking trails within a 139 acre of protected salt marsh and estuary wetlands at the mouth of the Union River. The level trail is 3 miles round trip with plenty of spots to sit and observe plants, birds and animals in their natural habitat. Do the entire distance or however much you are comfortable with. Bring your binoculars for some bird watching, or a good book to pass the time if you choose not to complete the trail. We’ll start with a visit to the Wetlands Education Center and then meander along the trail with our naturalist guide. On the way home we’ll stop in Union at 2 Margaritas for a hearty Mexican lunch.
