Thornton Creek Park #6 near Northgate is always a great wildlife show.
The beavers have created an incredible wetland habitat for many creatures. It is a natural area park, located along the South Branch of Thornton Creek on either side of 8th NE between NE 106th and 103rd Sts.
Today three kinds of ducks were sighted, including the Wooducks, Hooded Megansers and as usual lots of mallards. Also, yesterday spotted the Great Blue Heron again.
Also today TCA (Thornton Creek Alliance) hosted a small workparty to remove invasives like ivy and blackberry. Ruth Williams has been the wildlife steward for Park #6 for over the last decade. Work Parties are held on weekends throughout the year for volunteers to help control invasive weeds and replant with native plants.

Thornton Creek Park Six is a peaceful place that needs
a better name.
