Birds, bones and bugs, oh my! Come explore with us and unlock secrets of wildlife watching.  Experience hands-on discovery of the wild animals who inhabit Tennant Lake. Bird the boardwalk loop with Paul Woodcock from the Audubon Society, check out wild animal skulls and pelts with Richard Kessler of the Washington Fish and Wildlife Dept, and go on an aquatic invertebrate safari with Holly, Naturalist for Wild Whatcom Walks.
