Amon Wildlands Walk hosted by Tapteal Greenway

Mark your calendars for a family-friendly, educational event April 29 in Amon Creek Natural Preserve in south Richland. The Wildlands Walk is a 1.5-mile guided hike through the Preserve and features stations along the trail where you will learn about the treasures that can be found in both shrub-steppe and wetland habitats. Short presentations about reptiles, shrub-steppe restoration, insects, mammals, birds, geology; a bird banding demonstration and native plant seed ball-making; and booths with information from several non-profit organizations are all part of this free event.

Tours start from Claybell Park (425 Broadmoor Street, Richland) at 9:00 a.m. and will run about 90 minutes. The last tour will leave at 10:00 a.m. Please leave dogs at home. There is no charge to attend.
