A non-profit organization, which formed to preserve the unique chunk of forest, wedged between a suburban neighborhood and I-405, has succeeded in a remarkable preservation success. This is an outstanding accomplishment for a local non-profit. It was overall a ten-year effort.
With efforts by individuals, families, and other partners, the group preserved this unique forested area that hosts North Creek, an important salmon stream to prevent development that could have consume this property.
The effort sets a great example for other cities in the region for preserving precious open space.
