Snake Lake Nature Center in Tacoma recently opened a new play area called Discovery Pond and Saturday we headed out to see what it was like and take a nature walk at Snake Lake. The weather was perfect and our family was in some serious need of sunshine, nature and fun... making for a perfect time!
We spent a lot of time in the play area, had a picnic lunch and then took a walk around Snake Lake to learn about wetland and pond life. Along the way we made some fun discoveries - various vegetation, turtles, ducks, bugs galore, foot prints in mud, an ant pile, mini mushrooms, a birds nest and more. It was a wonderful day.
