The 418-acre Three Forks Natural Area is located in rural eastern King County at the confluence of the three forks of the Snoqualmie River, the largest river system in King County. 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. Last year King County restoration crews removed huge areas of blackberry to clear the area along the river for native plantings. Volunteers then helped in the planting. As Greenway Trust volunteers, we are partnering with King County to help steward this site to improve soil conditions and support the success of the new plantings overall! To do so, we will be working together to add mulch to the areas around the plantings. Thank you in advance for coming out to volunteer!
