"People protect what they love, they love what they understand, they understand what they are taught." -Jacques Cousteau
SHADOW offers inclusive and experience-based educational opportunities for students of all ages. Join us for a community class featuring local environmental experts; stop by one of our festive events; or plan a Wilderness Adventure for your school group or community club.
To date, SHADOW Lake Nature Preserve has placed over 100 acres surrounding Shadow Lake under permanent protection. The land that we steward is diverse, including a 5,000-year-old peat moss bog, upland forest, and scrub/shrub wetland. These critical habitats, within the Green/Duwamish Watershed, have a significant impact on the environmental health of the Puget Sound Region and provide South King County residents with access to green space in their own backyard.
Grassroots efforts drive SHADOW's restoration work and have powered our active restoration sites for over 20 years! Through Restoration Work Parties and stewardship events, community members are encouraged to take ownership of SHADOW's natural resources. The Nature Preserve aims to continuously improve local hydrology, animal habitat, and environmental quality through volunteer-led research, maintenance, and large-scale, succession forestry projects.
