North Creek Forest is going to take some loving care to remain an urban refuge for a diverse array of wildlife. It's edges are constantly challenged by invasive plants. If left alone these plants move deeper into the forest and begin to harm sensitive areas. Seeds from these unwanted plants can be delivered by a passing car, a bird or often by a neighbor who unwittingly introduces something "guaranteed to be easy to grow"....
Join UW-REN and some Friends for a 3 hour work party tomorrow March 10th. Invasive plant removal will continue and planting of natives may get underway. Click on the IMAGE to the left and find out the location. Hope to see you tomorrow.

The City of Bothell is applying for a King County Conservation Futures Grant. This is the beginning of Phase 2 forest acquisition to save the rest of the forest. Friends of North Creek Forest and the group Help Our Woods are doing what we can to assist in the process.
The City Council has now designated our new forest North Creek Forest. Thanks everyone. The name fits the ecology. Future generations won't even know the story but we appreciate the efforts and our ecosystem is better for it!
