BTB Contributor Jim Branson alerts us that he’ll be leading a “native plant” hike through Seahurst Park for the Washington Native Plant Society this Saturday.

This event will consist of a small group hike through the park, and observing the native plants within, including Trilliums, aka “skunk cabbage.” The weather forecast for Saturday is for sunny and warm.

Here are the details:

WHAT: Washington Native Plant Society’s hike through Seahurst Park

WHEN: Saturday, March 6, 2010; 11:00 a.m. Over by 1 p.m.

WHERE: Meet at the lower parking lot at Seahurst Park at 11:00 am.

RSVP: To sign up, contact Jim at [email protected]

INFO: From an email:

This field trip will introduce you to the native plants of Seahurst Park, including Trillium and skunk cabbage.

Last year, patches of snow covered the ground when a few intrepid people toured the park, and the Trilliums were late.

This year, the Trilliums are up early, and the forecast for Saturday is sunny and warm.

Also of interest: the oldest living tree in Burien, which is less than twenty feet tall.

This leisurely one mile loop walk may be muddy, so wear sturdy shoes. You’ll also want to dress in layers, as you’ll be plenty warm by the time you reach the top of the hill.

If rain threatens, be sure to bring an umbrella or raincoat.

Limit of 20 participants.
