Spring fever, already? Sign up for a kayak tour to a heronry

Has the sunshine Sunday and Monday gotten under your skin? Got the idea that spring is coming, and its time to get closer to nature? Then sign up for a kayak tour to see herons on Lake Sammamish.

In cooperation with Washington State Parks, Kayak Academy is taking registrations for guided kayak tours along the lakeshore at Lake Sammamish State Park and up a portion of Issaquah Creek. Paddlers will get a look at one of the Seattle area’s largest great blue heron colonies, with 80 to 100 nesting pairs, and a state park ranger will present on-the-water tips and information about herons.

Spotting scopes will be available for land-based birding; paddlers are encouraged to bring their own binoculars for viewing from the water.

The programs are noon to 3 p.m. March 17 and 24. Pre-registration is required by March 10, $12 per person, with kayak rentals available for an extra charge (or bring your own). For more information, or to register online, click here.
