July 2018 Update

King County Forestry Program

Want to help preserve Green Spaces in King County, and learn how to do it?
Want to lower your property tax?
You might be able to do both!

Raging River Conservation Group supports the King County Forestry Program, and encourages you to attend the upcoming class.

“Forest Stewardship Coached Planning a forestry class for Property Owners”
Wednesday evenings, starting September 5th
Sno-Valley Senior Center in Carnation

A part of this class is designed to help you write your own simple forestry plan that may qualify you for property tax reductions or conservation cost-sharing grants.
