Snoqualmie River Valley
Location
Tolt-MacDonald Park
Description

King County Parks and Recreation's 574-acre park sits at the confluence of the Snoqualmie and Tolt Rivers in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley. A 500-foot suspension foot bridge crosses the Snoqualmie River and offers terrific views of the river and Cascade foothills. During the fall, you can observe spawning salmon in the river below and eagles and osprey soaring above.

Volunteers will help sustain restoration efforts led by the Snoqualmie Tribe and King County Parks and Recreation. During this event, volunteers will learn how to plant trees and shrubs, get hands on experience, add mulch to the site for soil improvement and weed suppression, and enjoy a fun day giving back to King County Parks.
