The Friends of Heybrook Ridge is a member of the League of Snohomish County Heritage Organizations because it is working not only to preserve the nautral history of Snohomish County's park, the Heybrook Ridge Recreation and Education Area, but because of the rich cultural heritage to be interpreted on the land. There were two historic logging mills on the ridge and the Skykomish People used the ridge for berrying and hunting for millenia. To develop a trail system and pay for interpretive signs, the Friends are throwing a party. Here are the details from Friends, President, Sue Cross:

Hey Y'All, come for some Bluegrass fun at HEYBROOK HOEDOWN II on Friday, October 23, from 5-10 p.m.

Heybrook Ridge is a 120-acre forest near Index which was saved from becoming another dismal clear-cut last year when the non-profit Friends of Heybrook Ridge raised money toward its purchase.  After hard work and amazing luck, the Friends joined with Snohomish County Parks Department to buy the property, which is now becoming a brand new park.  Public access trails for education and recreation are currently being planned for the ridge, which abuts our new Wild Sky Wilderness.  

The Hoedown celebrates a genuine LOCAL grass-roots environmental success and helps raise funds for trails, all while having a great time.  Be there AND be square!  You will have an evening of stomping to live bluegrass music by SPARE RIB AND THE BLUEGRASS SAUCE, alongside the energetic and committed people who found a way to save the trees.  There will be good food and drink, awesome raffle prizes and a silent auction with terrific offerings.  Held in historic Floral Hall in Everett's Forest Park, tickets are ONLY $15 for adults or $5 for kids, and can be purchased at the door or by calling 360-793-7744.  May the Forest Be With You!
