UW-REN Site Celebration
Help us celebrate the hard work of this year's UW-REN team, as well as hundreds of volunteers who helped pull invasive weeds, spread mulch, and plant natives! Join us on June 3 at 5pm for a BBQ and site tours to learn more about the project.
The party will be behind our office at:
20218 108th Ave. NE
Bothell, WA 98011
Look for a gravel path to the right of the house and follow it down and around to the back! We'll have a small sign showing you the way.
Please RSVP using the form below.
We hope you can join us on Monday, May 23 for our first Brew Pub Fundraiser at Woodinville's Collective On Tap. Stop by anytime between 3pm-11pm for a beer (with 47 different beers on tap you are sure to find something you like), and a portion of your purchase will help support Friends of North Creek Forest. Enjoy an evening out and support North Creek Forest at the same time! Come between 5-8:30 to meet the brewers from 5 Rights Brewing Company and learn more about their beers.
The Collective has a small kitchen serving sandwiches and pizza, and is a 21 and over establishment. We look forward to seeing you there!
This grant supports our Stewardship Program, which focuses on improving the biological function of North Creek Forest, while simultaneously engaging the community to participate in its care. Our broader goal is to create greater public understanding of the environmental needs of our region.
Support from the Rose Foundation allows us to dedicate staff time to recruit, coordinate and educate volunteers at restoration and monitoring events to ensure that everyone has a positive experience, and that committed volunteers have the opportunity to work up to leadership roles.
We are honored to partner with the Rose Foundation to help people understand the connections between upland habitat, water quality, and the health of Puget Sound and to provide opportunities for all ages to make a positive environmental impact. Thank you for supporting this important work throughout our region.
Earth Day in the Forest
This year's restoration site is almost complete, thanks to our hard working UW-REN team, and many volunteers! On Earth Day weekend, we teamed up with Whale Scout, Cascadia College, UW-Bothell, our neighbors, and the general public to continue our work to remove invasive species and enhance the native habitat at the edge of North Creek Forest.
After a break, we switched gears to work on habitat enhancement projects, which included birdhouse assembly, mushroom colonization, bee house building and tree planting! Thanks to your hard work this restoration site will support an amazing array of native plants and wildlife, and even include oyster mushrooms right along the trail for human foragers to enjoy.
Thank you to our dedicated volunteers who spent such a lovely spring Saturday working to provide a healthy forest for our community! We are blessed to have so many hard working volunteers, of all ages!
