Join us as we celebrate fall by restoring riparian habitat at Aronica/Robinson Farm along the Snoqualmie River in the scenic Snoqualmie Valley. Today we will install native trees and shrubs to enhance salmon habitat and restore the riverbank of this 80-acre farm.
This project site is on rough terrain and near the Snoqualmie River. Due to these factors we would like to work with volunteers from age 14 and up. Participants are encouraged to plan a day in the valley as there is plenty of room on site to enjoy a picnic and the towns of Duvall and Carnation are close by to continue your Snoqualmie Valley adventure at the end of the day.
- From Seattle (I-5), take WA-520 E (exit 168B) toward Bellevue/Kirkland.
- Drive for 13.2 miles and continue onto Avondale Road.
- Take a slight Right onto NE Novelty Hill Road.
- At the traffic circle, continue straight to stay on NE Novelty Hill Road.
- After 4 miles take a sharp right onto West Snoqualmie Valley Road NE.
- Turn Left onto NE 100th
- After about a mile turn left onto the unmarked road (there will be event signs) and proceed to the parking area. Look for “Snoqualmie Stewardship Event” signs.
How to prepare:
We supply gloves, tools, water, supervision and an overview of the work you will be doing. We suggest that you dress in layers that include long pants, long sleeve shirt and a jacket. Sturdy footwear such as work boots, mud boots, hiking boots or running shoes are recommended. This event is outside and will only be cancelled if there is a flood. Please come prepared for the weather by bringing rain gear if you have it and older clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty or muddy. Bring a lunch or a snack if you would like as well as a full water bottle and a coffee cup or travel mug for refreshments.
