North Creek Forest celebration
On Friday we celebrated the acquisition of 63.4 acres of the North Creek Forest, thanks to a collaboration by the City, Friends of North Creek Forest, and Help Our Woods, with funding from various county, state and other grant sources. Shown here, Governor Jay Inslee, Mayor Andy Rheaume, Jim Freese from Friends of North Creek Forest and Paul Clement from Help Our Woods cut the ribbon at the April 28 ceremony. The City and a community steering committee are working on a site master plan for the North Creek Forest. Check out the Forest, just west of I-405 on the side of Maywood Hill.
