SHADOW Lake Nature Preserve stewards critical habitat, increases access to green spaces, and provides inclusive environmental education to cultivate a land use ethic throughout the Puget Sound Region.  


We offer ongoing and one-time opportunities in environmental education and recreation for kids and adults of all ages. Learn practical skills in a hands-on workshop, plan a field trip for your class or scout troop, stop by for an expert lecture or community gathering, or plan your own adventure. Topics range from wetland ecology and storm water management to how to create your own backyard wildlife habitat.

SHADOW has placed 100 acres surrounding Shadow Lake under protection. This preserves rare and valuable habitat, including a 5,000-year-old peat bog, that has a direct and significant impact on both human and animal life.

We work to continuously improve local hydrology, animal habitat, and environmental and water quality through research, planning, and the use of natural succession forestry. Specific ongoing projects include: planting native trees and shrubs, eradicating invasive plants, and creating beneficial habitat and hydrology features.
