Magnuson Park

As one of the original parks established at the inception of the Neighborhood Bird Project, Warren G. Magnuson Park has been surveyed by volunteers since December 1995. Here, you'll find more than four miles of walking trails along the shores of Lake Washington, grassy fields, evergreen and deciduous trees, and brush. Surveys take place on the second Saturday of each month and birders of all levels are welcome.
