Gov. Jay Inslee will be the guest of honor at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the North Creek Forest in Bothell.

The public is invited to join the celebration at 10:30 a.m. April 28 at the forest, located at the intersection of 112th Avenue NE and NE 202nd Street. Following the ceremony, there will be a tour of the 64-acre forest.

The final parcel of the forest was acquired by the City of Bothell with the assistance of Friends of North Creek Forest (FNCF) and Help Our Woods in November.

Prior to the ceremony, FNCF will have a continental breakfast at 9:30 a.m. Attendees should RSVP for the breakfast at www.friendsnorthcreekforest.org.
