DNR reschedules storm-stalled open house on Snoqualmie recreation corridor

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources has rescheduled the open house that was to kick off the Snoqualmie Corridor recreation planning effort.

The event is 7 to 9 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 1, at the Snoqualmie Middle School commons, 9200 Railroad Ave. S.E.

The Snoqualmie corridor, located in eastern King County, offers opportunities for outdoor recreation near the ever-growing Seattle metropolitan area. In the past 20 years, DNR has increased the amount of land it manages in the corridor. Some are state trust lands—working forests; other lands form the largest network of natural areas in the state. The 53,000-acre planning area includes two newer DNR-managed properties: the Raging River State Forest, purchased in 2009 to replace state trust lands previously transferred out of trust status, and the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Natural Resources Conservation Area.
