As a "city in a park," Bellevue offers the community many nature-oriented experiences and resources.
Take a walk on a trail, visit one of Bellevue's farm stands, or stop by a visitor center and talk with a park ranger!
Join us for a program at one of our three environmental education facilities. The Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center, the Lake Hills Greenbelt Ranger Station, and the Lewis Creek Visitor Center offer high-quality environmental education and interpretation to the Bellevue Community year-round. Browse through the quarterly Natural Resource Program Brochure, or stop by one of the visitor centers to learn more!
Kids can earn a Junior Ranger Badge!
School is out and summer has arrived. Are you looking for a fun and engaging way to inspire your children to connect with nature? Stop by the Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center, Lake Hills Greenbelt Ranger Station, or Lewis Creek Park Visitor Center to pick up our brand-new Junior Ranger Booklet. There are more than 15 activities you and your child can do together to explore and learn about Bellevue's natural areas. Once you have completed the activities, return the booklet to any of the three locations and receive your very own Junior Ranger Badge.
