Washington Park Arboretum

The Washington Park Arboretum was established as a Neighborhood Bird Project site in May of 2005, and is located on the south shore of Union Bay, just east of Montlake. Surveys take place on the third Saturday of each month and features paved trails of forest, and open space habitat. We encourage any new volunteers for the Arboretum to have intermediate birding by ear skills.
