Recently, a local team of volunteers joined forces with the Greenway Trust and USFS to repair the Sculpture Rock Trail out of Swauk Campground. This is just the first of many projects that will focus on giving much needed TLC to trails in the Upper Yakima Basin.
A major transformation has taken place along Issaquah Creek. Piece by piece, these open spaces are becoming healthier, stronger, and more resilient, even as the urban areas surrounding them continue to boom.
After four years of construction, the Middle Fork Road is now open! The reconstruction of this once notorious pothole-filled access road now provides safe and family-friendly access to this ‘wilderness in our backyard’ for the first time.
Volunteers rocked our Tree Planting Celebration, helping plant 1,775 native trees and shrubs along Issaquah Creek, in the first of many upcoming events.
It was a year full of wins. These successes—many compiled here—are thanks to our broad-based coalition. It’s well known that the secret to the Greenway’s success has always been our passionate supporters who collectively move mountains.
