Carkeek Park

The Seattle Audubon Society started the Neighborhood Bird Project (NBP) in 1994, with a series of volunteer-led surveys in Carkeek Park, Shadow Lake Bog in Kent, and a private property in Woodinville. Carkeek is located on the shores of Puget Sound in Northwest Seattle, with breathtaking views of the water and Olympic Mountains. Surveys take place on the first Saturday of each month and features miles of wooded trails. We encourage any new volunteers for to have intermediate birding skills.
