Please take 1 minute of your time, share and add your name to the sign-on letter to the Snohomish County Council for support of reconveyance of Snohomish County land next to Gold Bar, WA and the future Wild Wallace County Park.
Sign-on form is here.
The new park can help build constructive relationships and explore creative solutions. It can improve the health of ecosystem and watershed for people, salmon and wildlife. It can also reduce the impact on land from overcrowding at Wallace Falls State Park, provide much-needed trails and infrastructure, strengthen our community, economy and sustainability.
Historically, many Native Americans, including members of the Skykomish and Snohomish Tribes, occupied the Valley for countless centuries and were parts of a big native community on the populous shores of the Salish Sea. These tribes have rich history, culture and traditions and are known for their close relationship to nature. Tulalip Tribes are the successors in interest to the Skykomish, Snohomish, Snoqualmie and other allied tribes and bands signatory to the 1855 Treaty of Point Elliott.
