Barred / by An

It's been a while since I've visited the Yesler Swamp. Pretty cool to see the changes that have happened hear over two years. Like this boardwalk! It's made of rot resistant heartwood cedar and is designed to be low-impact on the surrounding fragile swamp environment.

Tyler ties pink tape around a native tree signaling to Swamp visitors to take heed of where to step.

Then I saw my very first barred owl!!

The boardwalk is about 2/3 finished. The Friends of Yesler Swamp is currently looking for funding sources to continue and finish the project. 

  Even in the middle of a highly urban area, you can still find pockets of greenery and wildlife. The Yesler Swamp is a prime example of a community coming together to help preserve and tend to shared green spaces.
