People visiting the Lake Quinault area can take part in a guided walk through the rain forest each Saturday, now through Sept. 29.

Interpretive guide Mary O’Neil will talk about the area’s history, native wildlife, tree identification, points of interest and more. Participants should wear comfortable shoes and bring along water. Also bring along binoculars and a camera for any wildlife sightings. Plan for a two- to three-mile walk.

The Quinault Rain Forest is one of four temperate rain forest canopies on the west side of the Olympic Mountains. The area averages 10-15 feet of rain each year.

The two-hours walks begins at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in the Lake Quinault Lodge lobby. The lodge is located on the western edge of Olympic National Forest.

The walks are free. For more information, call 360-288-2900.
