The 418-acre Three Forks Natural Area is 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. This 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. Join us as we continue to restore a healthy ecosystem by moving and spreading mulch which will help suppress invasive species regrowth, retain moisture around plantings and provide nutrients to the soil as it breaks down.
