Join the River Stewards from the U.S. Forest Service and the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association for "Noisy Waters: A Nooksack River Walk," a free guided hike along the easy Horshoe Bend Trail at 11 a.m. Sundays through Sept. 21.
Participants will learn about native plants, see birds and wildlife including the American dipper, test the water quality and identify aquatic insects in the North Fork of the Nooksack River.
Registration is not required and parking is free at the trailhead, which is about two miles east of the Forest Service's Glacier Public Service Center on the Mount Baker Highway outside Glacier. No forest service pass required.
Horseshoe Bend is a gentle 2.5-mile out-and-back trail that follows an old-growth forest section of the Nooksack River where it roars wildly among rocks and boulders, creating a challenging and popular run for kayakers.
For more information contact, Annitra Ferderer at 360-715-0283 ext.105.
Toilets and water are available at the Douglas Fir campground across the Mount Baker Highway or at the Glacier Public Service Center.
