At 71-acres, the Tacoma Nature Center preserve boasts more than 20 different species of mammals and about 100 species of birds. It is also home to reptiles, amphibians and native plant populations. The central feature of the Tacoma Nature Center is the 17-acre serpentine-shaped lake and wetland. The lake is home to the spectacularly colored wood duck, which frequently is seen at the first bridge. Mallards and Canada geese are common year-round residents. The plants and animals that live here are representative of those that share life with us in an urban environment. For the health of the ducks and geese, please refrain from feeding them.

Muddy in places this time of year. Nice pocket of "wilderness" right in the middle of Tacoma. Have seen owls, raccoons, and deer on occasion. Sometimes the turtles are sunning themselves on the logs in the lake at the first bridge.
