Did you know that in Washington State alone, there are more than 3,200 species of plants and 498 species of birds? In celebration of our state’s bounty, Tukwila hosts one of the best events near Seattle, the Annual Backyard Wildlife Festival! This event teaches all of us how to put more life into our own backyards. Celebrate wildlife, nature and gardening with the community, while learning how to create a healthy backyard habitat that supports native wildlife.
Event features local experts, along with a variety of resources, arts & craft vendors, and native/garden plant sales. Don’t leave the kids at home, hands on art projects and family activities will keep the entire family entertained and excited.
The festival is FREE and takes place every year in May at the Tukwila Community Center. In addition, local hotels usually offer special packages and rates throughout the weekend: https://www.seattlesouthside.com/deals/.
