Green Lake’s motto should be “survival of the fittest.” Here, at perhaps the busiest park in the state, everyone competes for breathing room. To keep up, human visitors circling the lake dodge inline skaters and stroller flotillas. The non-human world faces even greater challenges. Ailing cottonwood trees await the city’s chainsaw, while the lake’s trout struggle for oxygen during seasonal algae blooms. Park birds, in particular, illustrate the savvy required for survival in such a bustling outdoor destination.
