REALTORS® volunteer in Snoqualmie for TREC
The 13th Annual Planting Project by The REALTORS® Environmental Council (TREC) had a great turn-out with nearly 30 volunteers on Friday. Members of the Seattle King County REALTORS®, both brokers and affiliates, made an impact by planting a total of 292 native shrubs and trees at the Tokul Bypass Site in Snoqualmie. All of the work supports the Greenway Trust and King County Parks by restoring the altered landscape and protecting forest, floodplain, and riparian habitats.
“It’s great to participate in helping the environment and allowing the community to have these natural areas and wetlands,” said Yusef Nadir, Director on our 2020 Board. “REALTORS® are active in helping and sustaining the community because that’s what we are about.”
The REALTOR® Enviromental Council is a non-profit organization that engages in restoration projects throughout King County. It’s mission is to help real estate professionals raise awareness on the importance of protecting the quality of life in our communities.
“We share the Greenway Trust’s commitment to enhance people’s connections to nature,” said David Crowell, SKCR’s Director of Governmental and Public Affairs. “As REALTORS®, we know public parks and natural environments are desirable neighborhood assets that offer many recreational, environmental, cultural, social, and health benefits.”
Thank you to all of the volunteers who came out to network while making a difference!
