Restoration at Meadowbrook Slough: Green Snoqualmie Day
Join us as we help to celebrate Green Snoqualmie Day! With sweeping views of Mount Si and Rattlesnake Mountain, the Three Forks Natural Area includes over five miles of riverfront with 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. Meadowbrook Slough, one of the most notable wetlands in Three Forks Natural Area, has suffered degradation through the introduction of invasive plants such as Himalayan blackberry and Japanese knotweed. These plants do not provide needed shelter for wildlife and fish and their competition jeopardizes the health of native vegetation. Volunteers have worked hard over the past years to remove these invasive species and replace them with native vegetation. Volunteers will be a part of multiple projects, such as invasive species removal and planting native species!
For safety, volunteers are required to wear:
- Long pants made of sturdy material
- Sturdy, close-toed shoes
- Gloves (provided)
In addition, we recommend that participants bring:
- Warm layers, especially during the fall, winter, and spring
- Rain gear
- Big sack lunch
- Long sleeved shirt
- At least one full water bottle
- Small daypack for lunch, extra layers, etc…
