North Creek Forest is a 64-acre mature forest in Bothell, conveniently located within walking distance of nearly 10,000 college students attending UW-Bothell and Cascadia College and within 12 miles of every school in the Northshore School District. It meets the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife's definition of priority habitat, and contains wetlands and streams which act as a giant filter, cooling and cleaning water for salmon and other wildlife. Since 2011, Friends of North Creek Forest has worked tirelessly with the City of Bothell to raise over $2.7 million dollars to acquire North Creek Forest, a project that was completed in January, 2017. Now that the Forest is saved, we are expanding our education, research and stewardship programs.

Your GiveBIG donation, in any amount, will support these programs that honor relationships with nature, build a healthy forest preserve, and develop a resilient community that can respond and adapt to our changing climate and world. Your gift today makes a difference - thank you!
