  • Learn About the Geology of Fort Worden on April 30!

    The second in our “Sundays in the Park” series of natural history walks is scheduled for April 30. Led by geologist, Katherine (“Kitty”) Reed, the date was chosen to coincide with a minus tide that exposes more beach, including remnants of a “drowned forest.” During our walk, Kitty will explain the how, why, and when of the beach exposures at Fort Worden. Handouts will help clarify and expand on some of the observed features.

    The one-way walk, beginning at 2:00 and lasting until 3:30, will cover about one mile on uneven, rocky beach. Walkers should wear sturdy shoes, dress for the weather, have a current Discover Pass (for parking), and plan to return to their cars on foot or have transportation arranged. The walk is free for members of the Friends of Fort Worden State Park; nonmembers are asked for a $5 donation to benefit the park. Group size is limited to 15. To register contact The meeting location will be provided after registration.

    Other natural history walks scheduled for 2017 include an intertidal exploration on July 23 and a plant walk on October 8. Stay tuned for more information…
