Clean Up on "County Line Creek"
There is no official name for this creek. So we call it "County Line Creek" because that's where it is. This beautiful small stream has been trashed... as in garbage. Plastic chairs, bottles, plastic bags old rugs and a broken down tin covered cistern dominate the scene.
The land the creek passes through was purchased by the city in December 2011, our first successful assist in land purchase. Now we are teaming up with the Bothell Parks and Recreation Department to clean it all up in one day. We need a team to do this.
The building in the photo on the right is a cistern, a catch basin for irrigation water left over from the farming days before I-405 was built. It might look pretty here but it is a bag-of-ugly up close.
We will be dismantling the roof and hauling it off along with everything else. With your help we can make every view along this creek a place to enjoy.

This is the best community-based environmental website I've ever seen. The quality of narrative and photography is beyond anything I could have imagined coming out of Bothell. I'm so impressed, there aren't any words...You've captured the essence of the people and the other life forms that stand tall on these 64 acres.

Thanks Dan. This website is an ongoing record of all the events that have taken place over time as well as a growing record of knowledge about the forest. It is also the formal invitation to the community to come join each new work party as our plans go forward in the stewardship of North Creek Forest. Thanks for all your contributions to make this possible.

Thank you Dan, I am amazed and grateful so many people are inspired to save the forest. What started as a community group remains. But this cause has now flashed across the entire conservation community in Puget Sound. So many people are doing so many things it's hard to keep track of it all. There is still risk of failure. But my past experience with this kind of energy gives me well founded hope our great grandchildren will see the trees we planted and the giants we saved.
