Volunteer for National Public Lands Day

Celebrate public lands in the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Valley! Join the Greenway and partners on September 30th, 2017 for a day of stewardship and celebration.

Middle Fork Valley

For over two decades, a coalition of volunteers, nonprofits, and agency partners has worked to clean up and protect the Middle Fork. Now, the Valley is about to undergo another major transformation. The newly paved Middle Fork Road, just finished after three years of construction, offers safe and family-friendly access to this spectacular Valley for the first time. Along this Wild and Scenic River, recreationists can find experiences for every interest and ability level, from riverside picnics and swimming to technical ascents of rocky peaks… all on public land.

Volunteer Stewardship

Take a stand for public lands by giving back. Join a volunteer stewardship event with the Greenway and partners, and stick around for the celebration afterwards. All volunteer events are 9am – 1pm. Arrive at the Middle Fork Trailhead a few minutes early to sign in and enjoy coffee donated by the Middle Fork Roasters. (Registration required.)
