    Where is Lower Lions Natural Area? It doesn’t show up on the Parks map or the Parks List.

      Thanks for catching that one. Not sure how it slipped off that map, but we’ll work on adding it back in! Here’s a bit more information about Lower Lions: http://www.kingcounty.gov/environment/waterandland/natural-lands/ecological/lower-lions-reach.aspx. And there’ll be more work parties there in the coming months, so if you’re interested in getting involved, please contact Tina Miller, our Habitat Restoration Volunteer Coordinator, at tina.miller@kingcounty.gov – she can provide you with directions to the park and work site. Thanks!
