Snoqualmie Tribe hosts Knowledge Trail, rain garden tours

The Snoqualmie Tribe invites the community to attend guided tours of the newly completed ‘Traditional Knowledge Trail’ and ‘Rain Garden Landscape’ located on Snoqualmie Tribe lands, 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m, Saturday, June 8. See ‘Go outside’ for locations.

The Traditional Knowledge Trail is a five-year restoration project on reservation land, recently completed with interpretive signs about important plants along a creek-side, forested trail. The Rain Garden Landscape is a native plant landscape project with over 70 native plant species which serve to beautify and manage rainwater runoff at the offices of the Environmental & Natural Resources offices, located on the recently purchased Snoqualmie Hospital land.

All are welcome to learn about the importance of these plants for the tribe’s past  and present; and learn about their identification and landscape uses. Parking is limited at both sites so carpooling is encouraged. There will be a brief break for travel between sites, so bring a sack lunch if you plan to attend both tours.
