Washington State Parks and the Mountains to Sound Greenway are partnering together on the multi-year restoration of Lake Sammamish State Park. The State Park provides important habitat for several species of salmon, many birds – including bald eagles, great blue herons, and red tailed hawks – and a wide variety of amphibians, insects and other wildlife, making this a great spot not only for recreating but for wildlife viewing opportunities as well.
Up until 2019, this section of the park was a field of thriving himalayan blackberry. Since then, and with funding from King County One Million Trees initiative, the Greenway Trust was able to transform this field into a young forest — with the help of many hands, of course. From professional restoration crews, contractors, and over 300 volunteers in counting, this native forest was planted to help enhance the riparian buffer of Issaquah Creek. Join the Greenway in continuing restoring this area of the park by planting native trees and continuing to clear invasive species!
