The plantings will occur at several sites along Issaquah Creek in the fall '02 Issaquah Creek is a salmon bearing stream that feeds into the south end of Lake Sammamish. Issaquah Creek tributaries run off of Tiger, Squak and Taylor Mountains, and it runs through the City of Issaquah and enters Lake Sammamish at Lake Sammamish State Park. The City of Issaquah has spent the past ten years purchasing land along the stream to protect water quality and salmon habitat. We will be planting at sites the city has acquired within the City limits. The exact sites are known as: the Johnson Parcel, Sycamore Site, Hanson Property, Beebe property, Newport Way Bridge, Gilman Area, and CasselSite. Many of sites were either old homesites or farms. This project involves planting mixed hardwood and deciduous trees each year for five years.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
