Meeting on Bear Creek Basin Waterways properties

Bear Creek Basin Waterways Community involvement is encouraged at a meeting on site management decisions for Waterways 2000 properties in the Bear Creek Basin, set for Nov. 7, 7 p.m., at the Woodinville Library.
   Bear Creek Basin holds some of the most valuable aquatic and terrestrial wildlife habitat remaining in the county, supporters said. Funding for Waterways 2000 enabled the county to purchase several parcels along the Bear Creek Corridor in order to protect this resource.
   The public is invited to become acquainted with these properties and participate in the decision process about site management.
   Speakers will include Ray Heller, Bear Creek Basin Steward; Terry Lavender, Waterways 2000 Committee volunteer; and Hilary Lyman, county Site Management Planning Coordinator. They will present the properties involved: the former Whitlock property, 50 acres on Paradise Lake Road, and 11 acres south of the Tolt Pipeline trail, plus other sites.
   This is an opportunity to be involved in a teamwork process between county staff, citizen volunteers, and the community.
