• Visitor Centers and Environmental Programs

    The future health of Bellevue’s environment will be determined by all of us! Our programs reach youth, families, adults, local businesses, and community-based organizations to educate the Bellevue community about our natural resources.

    Kids can earn a Junior Ranger Badge! 
    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 Junior Ranger booklet, or view the booklet online.  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.
