Backyard Wildlife Festival & River Run 5K
May 12, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
As always, the Backyard Wildlife Festival features a marketplace with garden starts, native plants, handcrafted arts and gifts, and the Tukwila Arts Commission Art Show. Local and regional non-profits will have a variety of resources to help you create summer gardens that attract birds, bees & butterflies while protecting native plants and salmon. Let’s not forget about the kids – hands on art projects with a local teaching artist, chalk-a-palooza, bubbles and the list goes on.
