Save the date for the annual Frog Frolic, set for Sept. 14 at the Save Habitat and Diversity of Wetlands on Shadow Lake near Maple Valley.
SHADOW hosts the Frog Frolic, a free event, every year which draws more than 300 to the preserve. Visitors can tour the bog, enjoy environmental education activities, visit the beer garden, check out items in the silent auction, enjoy the potluck and more. Other nonprofit organizations partner with SHADOW to bring other activities to the event.
SHADOW has preserved natural lands in King County for nearly 20 years. To date the nonprofit has obtained protection for 100 acres of land including a 5,000-year-old peat bog, one of the few remaining in the area. Peat bogs provide habitat for wildlife as well as help protect water quality by filtering out pollutants in storm water.
The preserve is part of the Puget Sound Watershed.The preserve is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday. Reservations are recommended for a tour.
