Snohomish County Parks and Recreation staff have planned a meeting Tuesday night to get people’s thoughts on how to develop the newly acquired Wellington Hills Regional Sports Park.
It’s scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Brightwater Education and Community Center at 22509 Highway 9, in Maltby.
The county bought the 100-acre Wellington Hills property from the University of Washington earlier this year for nearly $10 million. The money came from a settlement over King County’s Brightwater sewage treatment plant, which required the county to buy land for a regional park.
For more info on Tuesday’s meeting, contact principal park planner James Yap at email@example.com.
Lynx and hare: University of Washington wildlife science professor Aaron Wirsing plans to talk on the lives and predatory relationship between the deep forest’s lynx and snowshoe hare.
The event is slated for 7 p.m. Thursday at the Northwest Stream Center in Snohomish County’s McCollum Park, 600 128th St. SE, Everett, and is geared toward fourth-graders to adults.
Reserve a space by calling 425-316-8592.
Cost is $5 for Adopt A Stream Foundation members; $7 for non-members.
