Join your Snoqualmie neighbors in celebrating the community’s forests by helping to plant several hundred trees and shrubs. This event is our biggest volunteering event of the year and a great time to plant a tree and leave a living legacy in the community. There will be food from local businesses, prizes to raffle off, and all gloves, and tools are provided. This event is great for families, and all ages and abilities can help out!
Green Snoqualmie Day will be at two locations:
Community Park is at the center of Snoqualmie Ridge. Volunteers have been working all summer to remove invasive blackberry plants that had established on a forested buffer of Stillwater Bog, a unique and largely unknown natural feature of the community. We are so excited to begin planting this buffer with native trees and shrubs to ensure the longevity of this forest and habitat into the future!
Mountains to Sound Greenway and volunteers have been working at the Meadowbrook Slough along the Snoqualmie River for decades, helping to restore and reforest the floodplain. This work not only creates great habitat for birds, elk, and other animals, but also improves the water quality of the Snoqualmie River for salmon downstream, and reduces the size of flooding events. Help continue in their efforts!
