Fences Gone At Kingfisher Site

Pa230724After months of work, construction of the Kingfisher Natural Area on Thornton Creek (NE 100th Street and 20th Avenue NE) has been completed and the fences removed. Thornton Creek is now wider and more shallow in order to slow it down during periods of heavy rain such as we have experienced this week (see below):

  1. I was there just a couple of days ago. It looks wonderful, and I hope this experiment is a huge success!

    We agree – it is beautiful.
    Neighbors, please be mindful of your dogs. Obey leash laws and scoop laws. We do not want this beautiful space ruined by the neighborhood dogs.
