10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Chinook Bend Natural Area will celebrate summer with a Field Day on Saturday, August 6th. Artist Betsy Damon, environmental expert Steve Tolzman, and Snoqualmie Steward Mary Maier will be on hand to greet participants and provide guided tours of the recently enhanced area from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  The fifty-nine acres of open space boasts many recreational access improvements and a number of ecological enhancements: an open water wetland, over 15,000 native trees and shrubs planted by volunteers, and a series of restoration projects. Betsy Damon’s newly installed public artwork, Homage to Living Systems, as well as tours of the site’s ecology will be highlighted during this fun and informative community event co-sponsored by 4Culture and the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks.

Listen to Betsy Damon talk about her artwork at Chinook Bend Natural Area.
