Description

More so than most cities, Seattle has shaped itself to suit its needs. Seattle has removed hills, filled tide flats, and created a completely new downtown shoreline. Join author David B. Williams on a 1.5 mile walking tour to explore the last vestiges of the former downtown bluffs, trace the lost island of Seattle, and examine how the subterranean fill still affects the modern landscape.

This walking tour starts at the intersection of Alaskan Way and Lenora Street along the waterfront and ends at Occidental Square. The tour is planned to occur the third Wednesday of each month running May through August. Get details and register online.

This event is hosted by Friends of Waterfront Seattle.
