Subject: Interested in a Day Trip with other NNN Members and Volunteers?
From: Northwest Neighbors Network



Hello!
This is darci, and I'm offering to organize a NNN Members and Volunteers Only day trip to Bloedel Reserve. 
 
This is a ferry, driving and walking outing.
 
If 7 or more are interested, we may be able to schedule a guided tour of the Reserve. If fewer are interested, we'll be fine wandering on our own. The paths and Reserve are not strenuous. I'm not a vigorous walker -- more  stop and oogle plants-- kind of gal, and I love wandering around the Reserve.
 
Logistics:
 
Excluding wait time to get on the Kingston ferry, it will take about 1.5 hours to get to the Reserve. 
Parking is very limited, so I tend to get there when the gate opens.
The Reserve is open Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 10-3 (last admission, all closed by 4:00); and Thursday-Sunday from 10-5 (last admission, all closed by 6:00)
 
Cost is $12.00 per person for the Reserve. We'd share the cost of the ferry to and fro evenly based on # of folks in the car. 
 
There are no picnic grounds - no eating on the premises. 
 
I'd be able to drive up to 5 people (including myself) in our Outback. 
 
Here's a link to the Reserve's Website so you can learn more:

Please RSVP by taking the four question survey.
 

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you!
