Wildlife Wednesdays a free film series celebrating nature

Snohomish County Parks and Recreation and the Adopt A Stream Foundation are kicking off Wildlife Wednesdays at the Northwest Stream Center with a showing of the IMAX film “All About Beavers” at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The evening includes a presentation before the movie from Sammy the Salmon on the beneficial buck-toothed engineers, and a question-and-answer session after the film with foundation director Tom Murdoch.

The audience then can take a little field trip to see a beaver dam on a bridge over North Creek.

The presentation at the Northwest Stream Center at McCollum Park, 600 128th St. SE, Everett, is free, but registration is required as space is limited. Call 425-316-8592.

Donations are accepted to fund the work of the Adopt A Stream Foundation.

“First Flight: A Mother Hummingbirds Story” will be shown June 18, and “The Way of Trout” is slated for June 25.
