Where We Work
The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe has been in the Pacific Northwest since time immemorial, with strongholds in the Snoqualmie Valley and around Lake Sammamish. Snoqualmie Peoples resided along the Snoqualmie River and its tributaries–the highways used to travel from village to village. Tribal members have lived, hunted, and fished this area as long as the earth and rivers remember and they are still here today–caring for the fish, game, trees, and roots that were provided to live.
ENR works with multiple local and regional partners to address environmental issues important to the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe. We work on a watershed scale primarily within the Snoqualmie and Sammamish Watersheds within the King and Snohomish Counties. Project areas are further identified by sub-basins or reaches of a river.
ENR currently works within two Puget Sound Partnership (PSP) Action Areas, Whidbey and South Central Puget Sound. In the Whidbey action area ENR works within the Mainstem Snoqualmie River, Upper Snoqualmie River, Snoqualmie mouth, Cherry Creek, Peoples Creek, Upper Coal Creek and Lower Tolt River sub-baisins of the Snoqualmie Watershed in the Water Resource Inventory Area (WRIA) 7, also called Snohomish Basin.
In the South Central Puget Sound Action Area, ENR works within the Lower Sammamish sub-basin of the Sammamish River Watershed in WRIA 8, also known as the Cedar- Sammamish Basin. There are four priority areas that the ENR restoration and monitoring program currently works in; Cherry and Peoples Creeks sub-basins, the Fall City Reach of the Snoqualmie River, Kimball Creek sub-basin, and the Sammamish River watershed.
