Rockport State Park

  1. Deep Forest Experience

    February 16, 2019, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM @ Rockport State Park

    Experience an ancient forest this winter at Rockport State Park.

    Rockport State Park’s Deep Forest Experience will take place between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in January and February. Rockport State Park staff and volunteers will lead half-mile, 45-minute walks under a dense canopy of old growth fir, cedar, hemlock and maple trees. Many of the Rockport trees are more than 400 years old and top out at 250 feet. They include the 500-year old “Grandmother Cedar.”

    During the walks, interpretive staff and guest speakers will discuss the unseen ecosystems that keep forests healthy, including salmon-bearing streams, animal scat and mycorrhizal fungi.

    Participants should dress for cold, wet, winter weather, including suitable footwear.

    Visitors can also duck into the family-friendly Discovery Center, enjoy free refreshments and hot cocoa by the woodstove, explore interactive displays, watch nature videos, read books and make crafts.

  2. Lichens: The Overlooked Fungi of the Forest

    February 16, 2019, 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM @ Rockport State Park

    Deep Forest Experience special guest speaker, Dr. Katherine Glew, Ph.D, Associate Curator of linches at the University of Washington Herbarium, will provide a short presentation to introduce the fascinating lichens of the old growth forest.

    If you have wondered about what a lichen is and why they are in the forest, this will be a great opportunity to view the lichen diversity in the state park and learn the names of our most common species. There will be a short classroom session, followed by a guided walk through the woods, identifying lichens collected from various forest microhabitats.

    Bring: A hand magnifying lens and a few paper bags for collecting.
