about Union Bay Natural Area:
The UBNA's ponds, grass- and woodlands, shoreline, and wetlands attract a wide variety of birds and wildlife. Over 180 species of bird have been spotted here; it's one of the best birding areas in the city. Look for turtles sunning themselves on logs along the marshy shoreline, or river otters swimming in Lake Washington. Eagles and great blue herons fly over frequently.
If you come around lunch or snacktime, stop by the Center for Urban Horticulture, located in the buildings to the left of the UBNA. A lush, shaded inner courtyard here is a perfect place to stop and rest.
