Description

Celebrate Green Snoqualmie Day this October with the Green Snoqualmie Partnership!

This event will take place in the floodplain of the Snoqualmie River, at Meadowbrook Slough. The Snoqualmie River is the largest river system in King County. This project site is part of Three Forks Natural Area, it contains juvenile trout habitat, and serves as a sanctuary and corridor for a broad range of wildlife including black bear, elk, cougar, eagle, deer, and river otter. The introduction of invasive plants such as blackberry and knotweed, which do not provide needed shelter and habitat for wildlife and fish, have contributed to the degradation of this sensitive habitat. In the past, volunteers and restoration crews have removed huge areas of blackberry and planted additional native trees and shrubs in their place

While enjoying sweeping views of Mount Si and Rattlesnake Mountain at the project site, volunteers will help in protecting the existing young native trees from herbivory (elk and deer munching!), clearing invasive plants, and planting native trees and shrubs.

This project is in partnership with the City of Snoqualmie, Forterra, and the Snoqualmie Tribe. As always, all of our planting projects are accomplished with support from Carter Subaru, the King County Flood Control District, and the Snoqualmie Watershed Forum.
