Additional Information

Sammamish Cove is a former dairy farm adjacent to Lake Sammamish State Park. It borders Tibbetts Creek, a salmon-bearing stream, to the Northeast. Boasting sweeping views of the Issaquah Alps, the area has been overwhelmed by invasive weeds. Greenway Trust volunteers have worked hard to remove these invasive weeds along the creek. Volunteers have also planted over two thousand native plants and shrubs in this area. Additonally, a half mile mulched loop trail was completed in 2019, all by volunteers. All said, volunteers have had a huge impact on this important area, and we are excited to have you join in on these continued efforts. Volunteers will be working on maintaining this area, clearing invasive weeds away from the new plantings, and opening up space for future planting efforts as well.
