Restoration at Three Forks Natural Area
July 7, 2018, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The 418-acre Three Forks Natural Area is located in rural eastern King County at the confluence of the three forks of the Snoqualmie River, the largest river system in King County. With sweeping views of Mount Si and Rattlesnake Mountain, the Three Forks Natural Area includes over five miles of riverfront with juvenile trout habitat, and serves as a sanctuary and corridor for a broad range of wildlife including black bear, elk, cougar, eagle, deer, and river otter. Meadowbrook slough, one of the most notable Class I wetlands in Three Forks Natural Area, has suffered degradation through the introduction of invasive plants such as Himalayan blackberry and Japanese knotweed. These plants do not provide needed shelter for wildlife and fish and their competition jeopardizes the health of native vegetation. Volunteers have removed huge areas of the invasive blackberry and planted native species. To protect these plantings, volunteers will return for additional blackberry removal and potential sheet mulching.
