[ARCHIVED] Volunteer: Arbor Day Trail Work and Tree Planting

You're invited as we partner with the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, Washington State Parks and Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park to celebrate Arbor Day by building a trail and planting trees!

Work will take place on both City and state park land, and the new trail will allow hikers and joggers to bypass the noisy sidewalk and intersections along Northwest Sammamish Road and instead enter Lake Sammamish State Park by following Issaquah Creek through an older forest restoration project site.

The volunteer opportunity starts at 10 a.m. April 15, 2017, behind the VCA Alpine Animal Hospital, 888 N.W. Sammamish Road. To learn more and sign up, go to

The new wood chip trail will be about 1,000 feet long, and will be vital to connect the City's Pickering Reach Trail along Issaquah Creek to trails within the beautiful 500 acres of Lake Sammamish State Park.
