Northwest Slope - Bye-bye Himalayan Blackberry!!05/07/2023


Are blackberries your jam? They sure are delicious, but did you know that there are two invasive species of blackberry here in Washington that are jamming up our forests and choking out native species? It's true! But fear not, citizen hero, because on May 7th, 2023 those blackberry will meet you and a small group of likeminded forest advocates at Cottonwood Forest - Snoqualmie's very first Green Snoqualmie site.

Clad in thick gloves, long sleeves, and pants (trust me). you'll use a variety of hand tools to lay waste to these forest invaders while chatting it up with your neighbors and enjoying the beauty of this important urban forest.
