Wild Wonders of Sherwood
By Patrick Stark, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
Pack your binoculars as this Daycation takes you to one of our favorite wildlife hot spots, Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge, where your little ones can have fun spotting deer, newts, and an incredible variety of birds that call this refuge home. No binoculars? No problem. Stop into the Visitor Center and check out a Discovery Pack, full of items to help your kiddos become wildlife spotters. Then, pop over to Sherwood to climb and play at Stella Olsen Memorial Park before following the stroller-friendly trail along Cedar Creek into Sherwood’s historic Old Town.
