Walk on plastic: The public is invited to an open house Sept. 13 at the Northwest Stream Center in Snohomish County's McCollum Park to walk on a new elevated nature trail being built by volunteers. When completed, it will be a boardwalk of recycled plastic lumber half a mile long. Visitors also can view a 160-foot trout stream exhibit.
The open house is from 1 to 4 p.m. The Northwest Stream Center is at 600 128th St. SE.
The boardwalk is 60 percent finished and is expected to be completed in November. It runs through a complex wetland system. Plants along the route are being carefully excavated for replanting in areas where volunteers have removed large areas of invasive plants.
