We'll leave the Tibbets Valley Park parking lot (corner of Newport Way and SR900) at 8:30. Click the link to Google maps above for directions from the parking lot to the site. 

We should arrive at the site parking area by 9:00. I expect this to take no more that 2 hours on site with 30 mins of driving on either end.

As with any activity, please cancel at least two days before the activity to allow anyone waitlisted time to plan. Last minute cancellation (less than two days) should be made via phone call or text to Alan Davey, 425-761-7616. 

The purpose of this training is to familiarize instructors and volunteers with the Raging River site and field trip exercises. First time instructors and volunteers are strongly to attend.

The Raging River State Forest field trip site is located 30 mins east of Issaquah close to the intersection of I-90 and SR18.
