Nurse log, Quinault Rain Forest Nature Trail
Olympic National Park is home to a temperate rain forest , a very interesting ecosystem. A nurse log is a fallen tree which, as it decays, provides ecological facilitation to seedlings.

Nurse log is on the Quinault Rain Forest Nature Trail in Olympic National Park. This is a very short walk, but very worthwhile - one of a number short family walks in the area of Lake Quinault.
