About

Washington State Parks and the Mountains to Sound Greenway are partnering together on the multi-year restoration of Lake Sammamish State Park. The State Park provides important habitat for several species of salmon, many birds - including bald eagles, great blue herons, and red tailed hawks - and a wide variety of amphibians, insects and other wildlife, but currently the area is extremely degraded by invasive weeds, including blackberry. Over the past ten years, volunteers have worked hard to remove invasive species and reestablish native plant communities throughout the park. This year we have been restoring a new 3.5-acre area along Issaquah Creek. Volunteers will help this important effort by planting several thousand native trees and shrubs along the banks to create better salmon and wildlife habitat.
