[ARCHIVED] Protect the Health of Snoqualmie Urban Forests and Trails at April 29 and May 7 Volunteer Events

Green Snoqualmie April 29 and May 7 9am to 12pm Volunteer Events Graphic

The Green Snoqualmie Partnership has two upcoming volunteer events that will help maintain the health of Snoqualmie’s Urban Forests and local trails. Join your neighbors, enjoy the spring weather, and protect the urban forests that make Snoqualmie one of the most unique small cities in King County. 

Invasive species are a threat to Snoqualmie’s urban forests. Himalayan blackberries may make delicious jam and pie, but they can choke out native species and degrade the health of local green spaces. 

This spring, the Green Snoqualmie Partnership – a collaborative effort to protect the health of the City’s green spaces – will pull up their sleeves, throw on thick gloves, and pull out these forest invaders and install new mulch to protect native plantings from the upcoming summer heat. 

Beautify and Restore the Silent Creek Trail, April 29, 2023, 9 am to 12 pm
Spread mulch, pull blackberries, and beautify the Silent Creek Trail. Bring a water bottle, wear clothes you can get dirty, sturdy shoes, and work gloves if you have them (will be provided if not). Meet just below Curtis Park on the Silent Creek Trail connector. Park along Silent Creek Ave or Elderberry Ave at the other end of the connector trail.

Bye-bye Himalayan Blackberry, Cottonwood Forest, May 7, 2023, 9am – 12 pm

Bring a bottle of water, wear clothes you can get dirty (pants are recommended), sturdy shoes, and work gloves if you have them (will be provided if not).
