Our Work in the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley

A broad coalition, including public land managers, conservation and recreation groups, and local citizens, has spent years designing a plan that balances conservation and ecological health with increased human visitation in the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley. 

In partnership with public land managers, our commitment extends far beyond construction of new recreation infrastructure. Ongoing maintenance, invasive weed removal, and storm damage repairs are of vital importance to sustain the ecological health of this Wild and Scenic River watershed. This cooperative model between public agencies and private citizens sets an extraordinary example of local communities coming together to care for public lands into the future.
