In November 2016 the City of Bothell finished its purchase of the final 22 acres to complete the North Creek Forest.

This 64 acre mature site includes seven streams and nine wetlands. It is one of the last coniferous forests in the Bothell area. Five fish species—chum, coho, sockeye, chinook, and steelhead—spawn in North Creek. And the Forest is home t a wide range of wildlife including black-tailed deer, mountain beaver, several specials of owl, hawks, and pacific tree frogs.

On April 12 at 10:15 a.m., Dr. David Bain, a founding member of Friends of North Creek Forest will speak at Northshore Senior Center about the Forest’s importance to our environment. His organization is involved in maintaining and improving the ecology of the Forest and educating children in these practices.

Dr. Bain will give another presentation on April 26 at 10:15 a.m., also at Northshore Senior Center. His topic will be on Killer Whales. As a whale researcher for 39 years, Dr. Bain is a leading authority on this threatened species. Both talks are free and open to all. Northshore Senior Center is located 10201 E Riverside Drive in Bothell. For more information call 425-487-2441.
