Nature & Environment

Would you like to be a Master Naturalist?

Bellevue Master Naturalists learn about our area’s ecology, geology, wildlife, plant life, cultural history, wetlands, forests, and streams from professors, local professionals, scientists, research assistants, and Park Rangers. Master Naturalists will focus on restoration and conservation efforts, and will help share this passion by working with and educating their community.

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!

Bellevue's Summer Park Ranger Program will be running from Memorial Day through Labor Day in 2018.  Bellevue Park Rangers work from 8 a.m. to midnight daily to provide education and outreach for the city.  They can be reached directly at 425-864-1899.  Please call 911 for any emergency or Bellevue Police for law enforcement needs.
