More so than most cities, Seattle has shaped itself to suit its needs. Seattle has removed hills, filled tide flats, and created a completely new downtown shoreline. Join David B. Williams, author of The Seattle Street-Smart Naturalist, on this 1.5-mile-long walk explore the last vestiges of the former downtown bluffs, trace the island where Seattle was founded, and examine how the subterranean fill still affects the modern landscape.

Date & Time: Wednesday, July 31, 6 – 8 pm

This tour is also offered Saturday, August 24, 10 am – 12 pm
