Evans Creek Preserve

web IMG_1438.jpg


The 213 acre Evans Creek Preserve offers wildflower meadows, wetlands, wildlife, forested uplands, 3.5 miles of pedestrian-only loop trails and precious respite from the noise and bustle of everyday urban living. A diverse collection of wildlife calls the Evans Creek Preserve home, including deer, black bears, hawks, songbirds and beavers.

In the coming seasons, members of the Washington Butterfly Association will be doing several butterfly surveys and there may be a single "butterfly person" on site from time to time checking for species.  They will have nets and be off trail.  No butterflies will be collected or removed from our preserve.  This is for identifying and development of a butterfly list to be placed on the website.

This property was purchased in 2000 and received it's name in 2002. Phase I construction was completed in September 2011 and included the 10-stall lower parking lot, restrooms and over 2 miles of trails. Phase II includes an upper parking lot and an additional 1 mile of trail connecting this parking lot to the existing trail system. The majority of the trails were build by volunteers under the supervision and support of the Washington Trails Association. During Phase I alone, volunteers contributed over 6,500 hours over 46 work parties to build trails, puncheons, turnpikes and enhanced wetland and stream corridors.
