It’s OURS, all OURS!

Squak Mountain celebration

In 2013, some 226 acres of lovely lush forest wedged between Cougar and Squak Mountains near Issaquah was threatened with clear-cutting. Thanks to the quick action of some conservationists and concerned hikers, King County and The Trust for Public Land made an agreement to protect the forest, where The Trust for Public Land would immediately purchase in the land and King County Parks would buy it from TPL over time. And guess what folks…we just made our last payment, so now this forest is OURS, ALL OURS!

And by “ours”, we mean YOURS! Hurray for all of us, down to the salmon in the stream and the birds in the trees.
