Located on the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula, Clear Creek Trail is almost 8 miles from Silverdale Waterfront Park on Dyes Inlet north to Trigger Avenue. It follows Clear Creek as it meanders through riparian areas, wetlands, and remnant forests. Hard to believe it's in the middle of a highly developed urban area.
July 1 thru July 31
Discovery Play Days - Wildlife
Discovery Play Days offers hands-on activities and outdoor education for young children (3 – 10 year-olds) and their parents or guardians.
Storytime with Miss Aleah, the youth librarian at the Silverdale Library, has evolved to Storywalk at three different section of the 8 mile long trail.
This year, we're safely exploring the outdoors. Our first exploration happened in June with a Low Tide Beach Walk at Old Mill Park in Silverdale.
July's Discovery Play Day is in the north valley. Start at the Dog/Skate Park and follow the signs to the posted book, "The Marsh in the Meadow."
Pick up an activity kit at the Silverdale Library for a fun, learning adventure on your own or with WSU Stream Stewards on July 22nd.
More information is at Clear Creek Trail's facebook page or at the Silverdale Library where you can pick up an activity kit.

Install StoryWalk boards
Join us to install 16 StoryWalk boards that contain pages from a book: About Birds A Guide for Children by Cathryn Sill.
We'll be using a hammer to pound in the stakes which the pedestals for the StoryWalk boards are attached to.
After installation we'll enjoy a picnic lunch. Please RSVP to Volunteer@Clear CreekTrail.org

Resurface the Clear Creek Trail
