You can help restore riparian forest in Carnation

The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, with multiple partners, has begun a riparian forest restoration project in Carnation, and is inviting the community to join them, 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 9.

The Tribe has already cut down the Himalayan blackberries at the work site, near the Tolt Bridge and S.R. 203. Next, the rootballs need to be removed, to help renew the forest. Bring a shovel or pick, or borrow one of the tools supplied and help dig out roots and make a difference.

“This project borders the Tolt River and a side-channel restoration for salmon habitat recovery, and will play a role in enhancing the success of multiple other restoration projects along the river,” said Snoqualmie Tribe chairwoman Carolyn Lubenau. “At the same time it will provide scenic entry into the city of Carnation with interpretive signage and trail access.” Mountain to Sounds Greenway, Snoqualmie Indian Tribe and Trout Unlimited will be working with the local community and schools to host educational volunteer events at the site with planting and caring events over the coming year. You can learn more by contacting Heidi Bohan, at, or calling (425) 495-4620.
