Tree Planting at Sandy Cove

When
Saturday, March 2 - 10am to 2pm
Event Type
Priority Areas
Snoqualmie River Valley
Description

Located along the Snoqualmie River, Sandy Cove Park is a quiet spot to sit and appreciate your natural surroundings. Along this section of the Snoqualmie River, intense erosion of the river bank can be seen. This highlights the need for a native plant buffer along the river, to help stabilize the river bank, provide shade to cool the water temperature, and to increase habitat for native pollinators. This year, come join the partnership of the City of Snoqualmie and Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust as we plant native trees and shrubs alongside the Snoqualmie River to address these needs. No experience necessary, all training provided.
