Wagoo with the Crew? RSS

Where do we even begin? 2020 has been such an arduous year for everyone. From the early days of quarantine in March, our sense of community has been completely altered. We were told to stay in our homes and avoid contact with people; especially large groups. The community connection our movement is rooted in was completely disrupted. We had several planting & forest restoration events planned for the spring and summer before the turbidity of Covid-19 settled in. As we began to adjust to a new way of living it became increasingly clear that our events would have to be...

What’s the deal with the snowfall (or lack thereof) this year? If you’re like most powder junkies you’ve been busting out the early snow dances and keeping a keen eye to the local forecast. Your skis and boards are waxed and tuned, you swooped the new gear you'd been eyeing all summer and your new roof rack has been installed but aside from some early season flurries the entire West Coast has been quiet on the storm front.

Back in April the ET Crew became Forest Stewards of Jeanne Hansen Park as a part of the Green Snoqualmie Partnership.

This spring and summer we worked with the City of Snoqualmie and a lot of helpful volunteers to begin the restoration project. We quickly learned that the aging canopy of treez is starting to...

When we planted 57 treez with a small group of friends at the Cedar River last May, none of us were thinking that someday we'd be leading members of our community in a concerted effort to restore the forests we love. We were simply planting a seed and hoping that our rootz would spread. Fast forward a little over a year later and we're now doing what we set out to do as Forest Stewards in the Green Snoqualmie Partnership. When we came back to water and check on our baby treez last July, we fortuitously met a group of...

When we started ET one of our main goals was to connect and inspire friends, family and strangers to get out and enjoy the sanctity of the forest. We believe in a future where our communities can work together to care for our forested parks and natural areas. It's been precisely one year since we decided to go rogue and plant 57 EvergreenTreez along the banks of the Cedar River. Since last May we've returned to the river a handful of times to continue the restoration project with Forterra NW. We've made new friends along the way and seen the...
