The Green River Natural Resources Area (GRNRA) is bounded by the Green River to the west, South 212th Street to the north, 64th Avenue South to the east, and the Puget Power Trail to the south. There are three observation towers, parking and a walking trail.
The site, formerly an abandoned sewage lagoon system, was transformed by the Public Works Department into a combined storm water detention and enhanced wetland facility. It provides habitat to an estimated 165 birds and 53 mammals, and serves as a nesting, feeding and brooding area for many species that use the Green River corridor as a travel route. The GRNRA is one of the largest man-made, multi-use wildlife refuges in the United States.
