BIRD WATCHING

BIRD NESTING SEASON HAS COME TO THE UNION BAY NATURAL AREA!! PLEASE ENJOY OBSERVING THE BIRDS, THEIR NESTS AND NESTLINGS FROM THE TRAIL. OFF TRAIL WALKING & OFF LEASH DOGS DISTURB NESTING BIRDS.

UBNA reigns supreme as Seattle's best urban bird watching site. Over 180 migratory and resident bird species have been observed here with new sightings every year.

 

DOG WALKING

Dogs and their companions are always welcome to walk the gravel paths of UBNA. We only ask that you...

KEEP YOUR DOG ON A LEASH AT ALL TIMES AND STAY ON THE GRAVEL PATHS

UBNA is a wildlife sanctuary. Unleashed dogs can frighten and sometimes kill wildlife. Your dog may also encounter raccoons, opposums, and skunks which may bite to defend themselves. These mammals have been known to carry rabies. For the health of your dog and our wildlife please respect King County leash laws.

SCOOP YOUR DOG'S POOP

While the wildlife are free to recycle their wastes at UBNA, dog feces can introduce diseases to wild animal populations that can harm the wildlife and possibly be retransmitted back to your dog via wildlife encounters (see above). For the health of your dog and our wildlife please respect King County scoop laws.

EXPLORING UBNA BY FOOT & BIKE

UBNA offers a gravel loop trail connecting with Wahkiakum Lane for your walking, jogging and biking pleasure.

PLEASE RESPECT THE WILDLIFE AND OUR RESTORATION PROJECTS BY STAYING ON THE GRAVEL PATHS
