As part of our 2016-2020 Strategic Plan, we are evaluating all of our preserves with the goal of making 4-6 preserves available for passive recreation and educational programming. We are excited to announce the first of these preserves:
Interpretive Trail at Randall Preserve – At the southern-most end of Puget Sound on Eld Inlet is Randall Preserve—seven acres of tideland estuary and shoreline. This once heavily used site had buildings on it, and the shoreline was hardened with hundreds of tires. Its shores are now being transformed, restored into high-quality habitat for migratory birds, fish and animals. Plan a visit to Randall Preserve to enjoy the scenery and wildlife!
Open from dawn till dusk.
Keep pets on leash and dispose of waste properly.
No hunting or fishing, boat launching, fires/fireworks, camping or biking
Location: 4939 Mud Bay Road NW, Olympia, WA 98502 Free parking is available at the site.
