Welcome to Kennedy Creek!
The Trail will operate a bit differently this year due to Covid 19. For the 2020 season, the Trail will be open Friday – Sunday starting November 6. The Trail will be closed for Thanksgiving and the final day will be Saturday, November 28. The gate will open at 10 am and close at 4 pm on those dates and will be locked Monday – Thursday. Docents will be on hand to answer questions, however, we will not be providing guided field trips. When visiting the Trail, please wear a mask, for your protection and the protection of our volunteers.
The Trail will be open the following dates:
- November 6, 7 & 8
- November 13, 14 & 15
- November 20, 21 & 22
- November 27 & 28
DO NOT drive through the gate unless you have scheduled a visit with us. The gate must remain closed and locked at all times except for weekends in November and we don’t want you to get locked in.
If you’d like to schedule a visit to Kennedy Creek with your class please contact Jerilyn Walley or Cole Baldino, KCST Coordinators at (360) 412-0808 or by email at KennedyCreek@spsseg.org. Visits to the Trail are free, however schools are responsible for transportation. If desired we can provide a curriculum for teachers to use in the classroom to help enhance the visit for students.
If you would like to volunteer as a Docent this year please contact Jerilyn Walley or Cole Baldino, KCST Coordinators at (360) 412-0808 or by email at KennedyCreek@spsseg.org to get on our docent email list. Docents are integral to Kennedy Creek and as one long-time docent put it “you don’t know what a good time is until you’ve poked a salmon carcass with a bunch of curious 4th graders.”
All this information you’ll need as a trail guide is covered during your training and is found in the docent notebooks we provide you with. All you need to bring is your enthusiasm and a good rain jacket!
We’ll see you at the Trail!
