It’s true! The City of Bothell has authorized the final purchase of North Creek Forest!
By mid-January, all 64 acres will be permanently protected as a forestland park
that benefits both wildlife and people.
Your generosity and unwavering support made this possible. Thank you!
Six years ago when we embarked on this undertaking, Friends of North Creek Forest made a promise to the City of Bothell to continue partnering after the entire forest was saved. And while the purchase of the final parcel is a tremendous achievement, the work is not done. In fact, in many ways, the most exciting part lies ahead!
Endorsements from hundreds of individuals and groups helped this effort grow from a neighborhood project into a community movement. That grassroots movement is what saved this forest. Your generosity helps follow through on not only the commitment to long-term stewardship of North Creek Forest, but also to make it accessible. Your gift today supports planning for a trail network that will protect the forest’s habitat value and important storm water benefits, while also soliciting and incorporating community input and needs.
Friends of North Creek Forest’s work has always been about more than saving trees and land. It has also been about ensuring access for everyone to be inspired by the forest and learn the lessons it can teach us.
