O'Grady Natural Area (Jul 25, 2006 - May 16, 2013)
O'Grady Natural Area (WAKCOGDY) Auburn, WA (USA) Lat,Long: 47.27536,-122.08896 Map Elevation: 300 feet 81 species 17 trips (14 non-trip sightings)
Undeveloped King County park of about 100 acres on the south side of the Green River, accessed via SE 384th St and 188th Ave SE about 5 miles E of Auburn. The park includes a half-mile stretch of the Green River, fields and cottonwood forest along the river and mixed hardwood forest with patches of fir and cedar on the quarter-mile wide slope along the south side of the Green River Valley. The area along the river was a farm several decades ago but since then the fields have shrunk considerably as the river has continued to erode its south bank through the park. Across the river from O'Grady Park is a somewhat narrower strip of riparian cottonwood forest preserved in another King County natural area.
