Visitors to Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge can learn about its history, the plants and animals during a series of guided weekend walks.
The series, which will run through the end of June, uses experts who lead walks through the refuge to point out the bird life, the interaction of plants and key historical locations.
The walks are offered at various times Saturdays and Sundays. The programs are free, but there is a $3 fee per vehicle of four adults to enter the refuge. The refuge is located off Interstate 5 at Exit 114 between Olympia and Tacoma.
You can get the entire schedule at fws.gov/refuge/nisqually.
