Snoqualmie Prairie Restoration
Meadowbrook Farm Interpretive Center
The Snoqualmie Valley floor was once a vast open prairie, maintained by ancestors of the Snoqualmie Tribe for thousands of years for food, medicinal plants and hunting. But the beautiful open space meadows that remain (Meadowbrook, Tollgate, Three Forks) are no longer native prairie. Join Snoqualmie Tribe biologist Ryan Lewis to learn about the exciting prairie restoration plans, the plants involved, and what to watch for at the planned restoration sites.
Meadowbrook Birds in Fall
Meadowbrook Interpretive Center
What birds live on Meadowbrook in the fall? Have summer residents left for the winter, or will some of them stay here? Walk with wildlife biologist Harold Erland through Meadowbrook’s woodlands and meadows to learn more about our bird population, recognize birds by their calls, and try helpful birding phone apps. Dress for the weather and possible mud; approximately 2-mile stop/look/listen walk.

Many popular recreational sites today are significant and/or sacred sites to the Snoqualmie Tribe. Tribal member Jaime Martin will explain how people can join in stewardship by respecting, protecting and helping restore these special lands.
