Description

We are celebrating the start of fall and the native tree planting season with our Annual Tree Planting Celebration at Sammamish Cove in Issaquah. Planting events are excellent for individuals, families, groups, and work teams. Sponsored in part by Carter Subaru, the City of Issaquah, and Lake Sammamish State Park, the celebration will include food, music, and plenty of tree planting fun for the whole family. Coffee, bagels, and lunch provided for volunteers!

Plantings will help increase native plant diversity, canopy cover, and tree regeneration, all of which will benefit native salmon populations. Sammamish Cove borders Tibbet's Creek, an important salmon-bearing stream that provides vital habitat for species in the Lake Sammamish ecosystem.

Project Difficulty
Easy to Moderate
Age Restriction
Any participant 13 years old or younger must be accompanied by an adult.

For safety, volunteers are required to wear:

In addition, we recommend that participants bring:

  • Warm layers (be prepared for cool and wet conditions)
