Monthly nature hikes going great!!

Selfie with some of the participants of my first accessible hike, on Earth Day, April 22, 2022 at Wildwood Park, Puyallup WA

I’ve been co-leading some pretty cool accessible hikes lately. We started in April with a wheelchair hike at Wildwood park, it is a very cool park that makes you feel like you are in the wilderness surrounded by cool plants, trees and lots of things to learn. There are a lot of really cool trails to go on. I met a lot of great people and it was great learning about the outdoors and about nature in general.

Our Hike in May was at the Foothills trail. Which was very peaceful with lots to look at like the rivers and bridges. I brought my dog Max along and we ended up going all the way back to Puyallup and Max was exhausted but grateful.

In early June we went to Point Defiance park and there was cool things to see over there like the beautiful landscapes surrounding the park. This park also included bridges along with various trails and also has access to the point defiance Zoo , as well as access to a beach called Owen beach witch was just renovated to be more accessible except the beach itself.

I’m really looking forward to our next event on July 2nd which will include accessible fishing on Les Davis pier in Tacoma from 3-5 pm. Whether you are an experienced angler or new to fishing, join us for a great day of fishing at our favorite local spot to learn the basics of the rod and reel with our seasoned instructors. We’ll show you how to follow laws and tradition to fish local rivers, foothill lakes, and the Salish Sea. Target fish include trout, salmon, steelhead, bass, surf perch, flounder, sole, dogfish shark, lingcod, and crab when in season.

Wolf Camp will share all the fishing gear we’ve gathered over the years. $15 contributions go to the Conservation Luminaries program, and a Fishing license is also required which you can purchase at
