Maintenance and Monitoring

Invasive plant removal and native species planting have become the routine activities at work parties. We hold five or six work parties per year.


This is a community effort to provide access through and restore three acres of steep, city-owned land that Forgotten Creek flows through, near downtown Everett. Cleanup and invasive plant removal began in early 2002. Replanting with native species started later that year. Following a community design process, trail access began in 2004.  The trail through the site was completed in 2008.

How Stewards can assist Stewards can assist with planting, weed removal, clean up of litter, monitoring, photography, historical and ecological interpretation, and neighbor involvement. There will be construction of a combined sewer overflow project at the entrance to the project site within a few years.  Expert help will be needed to create graphic interpretation of the history and ecology of the watershed.  All-weather interpretive signs will be needed.
