PROTECTING + ENHANCING THE GREEN RIVER + OUR WATERSHED
Green River Coalition collaborates with community, municipalities, nonprofits, educational institutions and other agencies to protect and enhance the
Green River and our watershed.
CURRENT RESTORATION PROJECTS
Dandy / Bass / Beaver Lake Complex
Bass, Beaver, and Dandy Lakes are owned by King County.
Originally privately owned, this important wildlife habitat was not managed or replanted after a harvest by a logger in 1999 allowing invasive blackberry to completely overtake the sites. GRC has been managing the restoration of this 9.8-acre site in collaboration with King County since 2012.
Covington Community Park
GRC has been managing the restoration of 7.3 acres on this site in collaboration with the City of Covington, King Conservation District, and Green River College since 2014.
Lower Soos Area
This site is owned by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). GRC has been managing the restoration of this 1.8-acre site in collaboration with WDFW and King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks since 2013.
Institute For Community Leadership
This site is owned by the Institute for Community Leadership (ICL), a GRC partner. This property was originally open pasture with very little riparian shade or native vegetation. ICL acquired 18.2 acres in 2004 and began to restore it with the help of the Veteran Conservation Corps from Green River College and GRC.
WHAT IS THE MIDDLE GREEN SUBWATERSHED?
The Middle Green River Subwatershed starts at River Mile 32 just east of Auburn and stretches to the Howard Hanson Dam.
It includes two major tributaries:
Soos Creek on the north side of the river, draining Kent, Covington, Maple Valley, and Black Diamond and Newaukum Creek on the south side of the river, draining the Enumclaw area.
