Celebrate Lincoln Park: Part I on Tuesday, April 23 (6:30–8:30 p.m.) at The Hall at Fauntleroy will feature information tables and presentations about the history, creatures, and ecological importance of the park.

Information tables will include Seal Sitters, the Whale Trail, Fauntleroy YMCA, Seattle Parks and Recreation, Puget Sound Partnership, Seattle Animal Control, Friends of Lincoln Park, and the Alliance for Lincoln Park Nature. Speakers will include acting Parks superintendent Christopher Williams, local historian Judy Pickens, Seattle University associate professor of environmental studies Trileigh Tucker, and Friends of Lincoln Park president Sharon Baker.

Celebrate Lincoln Park: Part II on Saturday, April 27 (10:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m.) will take advantage of a minus-2.6’ tide to help park visitors see and learn about sea life along the beach and in the water.

Volunteer beach naturalists and Seal Sitters, plus staff from the Seattle Aquarium, will be on hand. Local experts in birds, marine life, plants, ecology, nature photography, and art will lead nature walks and creative activities in the forested upper part of the park. All activities will start in the south part of the park. Signs and volunteers will direct visitors to activities.
