Who Lives at SHADOW?

The animals of Western Washington depend on wetlands for critical support. Wetlands provide food and shelter for wildlife during their most vulnerable points – migration, breeding, and nesting. According to the King County, over 200 species of Washington’s wildlife require wetlands to survive.

When you visit SHADOW, our wildlife residents will be well aware of your arrival! Although spotting some of our larger inhabitants requires patience, signs of life are all around. Whether you spot holes drilled in deadwood by a pillated wood pecker, scratches left on the bark of a western red cedar by a cougar, or owl pellets scattered along the trail; keep your eyes peeled for signs of SHADOW’s wild residents.
