Tree Planting at Tolt MacDonald Park

February 10, 2018, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Description

Come out and plant trees with your friends and family at Tolt MacDonald Park in Carnation!

King County Parks and Recreation’s 574-acre park sits at the confluence of the Snoqualmie and Tolt Rivers in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley. A 500-foot suspension foot bridge crosses the Snoqualmie River and offers terrific views of the river and Cascade foothills. During the fall, you can observe spawning salmon in the river below and eagles and osprey soaring above.

The area that currently serves as Tolt-MacDonald Park has a long history, and continues to be an important cultural site and a focal point for restoration. Tolt-MacDonald is also a favorite destination for exploring trails on foot or mountain bike. Volunteers may be helping repair and maintain these well-used trails. Greenway volunteers also may be planting native trees and shrubs along the Tolt River to support restoration efforts led by the King County Parks and Recreation.

Project Difficulty: Easy to Moderate
Age Restriction: Participants under 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
What to Bring:
For safety, volunteers are required to wear:
– Long pants (we’ll be working with tools, so no shorts!)
