Don't Miss Sunday's Walk in the LBA Woods

Join our Guided Nature Walk and LBA Woods iNaturalist Project on Sunday May 20 9-11:30

If you've never explored the network of trails in Olympia's LBA Woods, now's your chance to do so with two very talented scientists.

Ted Thomas, botanist/biologist/ecologist (USFWS, freshly retired) will be your guide. Ted is an extremely knowledgeable raconteur who has been walking in the LBA Woods for decades and knows the stories of the plants and the plant community well.

He'll be joined by Jawad Frangieh, who is savvy with iNaturalist app we'll be using to collect data on the plants we'll observe on the walk. Jawad is currently serving in AmeriCorps with the USFWS as a Conservation Educator and Scientist and uses iNaturalist for fun and for organizing citizen scientist projects like the LBA Woods Project.
