We are revegetating between the Foothills Trail and Boise Creek through a series of volunteer events, some contracting with Earthcorps, college Interns from Green River College and middle school students and teachers from the Enumclaw School District. This project will go forward for several years and will touch many community members. Highway 410 is parallel to the creek. Our work will be installing native plantings creating filters to the creek. Students and community members will be developed as stewards.
Utilizing the Best Available Science and Best Management Practices as defined by our partner organizations: King County, Washington Native Plant Society, King Conservation, Green River College Natural Resources and many years of experience via Green River Coalition (our sponsor).
Historically the residents of this part of King County have been difficult to educate. This grant will allow outreach events to accomplish that difficult task.
