The Adopt A Stream Foundation is hosting a Fall Nature Walk at 11 a.m. Sept. 21 at the Northwest Stream Center Visitors Building, 600 128th St. SE, Everett.
Visitors will walk around the edges of wetlands, go over a bridge that crosses a salmon stream and take trails through the wooded area in McCollum Park.
Naturalists Lori Powlas and Tom Noland, who is also a zoologist, will guide the nature walk, helping people to identify native plants. The guides will explain the impact of the native plants on the ecosystem.
They will also show how local plants were used by American Indians, and the types of plants that can be eaten.
At the end of the walk, Powlas will show people how to make a plant press to preserve the leaves they have identified for future reference.
