TREC Planting Project
October 4 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
13th Annual The REALTORS® Environmental Council
TREC Planting Project
Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust – Log Cabin Natural Area
The REALTORS® Environmental Council (TREC) volunteers will work to plant native shrubs and trees at Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust in Issaquah. This 120-acre site is located along Issaquah Creek in the middle of the Issaquah basin. The Mountains to Sound Greenway is working with King County Parks & Recreation to remove invasive species and plant native trees and shrubs in this area. As an old homestead, the landscape has been heavily altered, so you are helping restore it to forest, floodplain, and riparian habitats. Come to experience this tranquil site, meandering stream, and secondary and old growth forest – all while giving back to this important natural area. Thank you for volunteering with the Greenway Trust and King County Parks!

Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust will provide tools, gloves, parking accommodations, port-o-potties (if there are no nearby bathroom facilities).

The REALTORS® Environmental Council
