Pickering Reach

Green Marker
47.550543 -122.047312
Issaquah, WA 98027 (King County)
Trees along Issaquah streams are critical to healthy salmon runs and clean water. Native vegetation shades and cleans the water, and provides important habitat for fish and wildlife large and small. The Issaquah Creek Basin is about 61 square miles and is bordered by Tiger, Squak and Taylor mountains. Even though the Basin has many acres of good habitat and abundant wildlife, existing streamside areas are filled with more than 50% non-native plants. These plants don't provide shelter for wildlife and fish and are competition for the health of native vegetation. Volunteers will help remove these invasive plants to give the native plants a better chance at survival.
