Did you know that most of the east side of Lake Washington was clear-cut by 1920? Or that nearly all of the big trees that we see today are less than 100 years old (they won’t reach “maturity” for another 200 years)? In preparation of Arbor Day, come see the equipment that evolved from two men working one tree all day with a hand-saw, to sky-line cable operations that could clear a whole Cougar Mountain valley in a single day. Join Eastside Heritage Center volunteer and former Cougar Mt. Park Manager Steve Williams for this fascinating presentation.

Presented in partnership with Bellevue Parks & Community Services.
