Part of our past is represented by the many invasive plants that, until recently, have crowded out native species around our Education Center.

Volunteers will help shape our future by planting natives plants, removing invasive weeds, and mulching along Rattlesnake Lake. Join us to be a part of the story!

Planting along Lake Sammamish

Event Description: Volunteer to improve habitat along Lake Sammamish with Friends of the Cedar River Watershed and City of Sammamish! Sammamish Landing is an 8.23 acre site located along the eastern shore of Lake Sammamish and is the only stretch of shoreline property along Lake Sammamish that is in public ownership within City limits. The southern section of Sammamish Landing contains invasive plants that threaten to spread and degrade habitat. Volunteers will work to restore this important shoreline to a more natural and sustainable state by planting and mulching native trees and shrubs in an area cleared of invasive blackberry and ivy this summer. Join us along the lake this fall to continue progress!
