SAVED: A BIG RIDGE CALLED HEYBROOK
August 01, 2008



(INDEX, WA) -- Heybrook Ridge, just above Index has been saved from the clear cutter’s chain saws.

The Snohomish County Council is scheduled to vote Monday to spend $700,000 in county conservation funds to help buy the 130 acres of mature forest land on Heybrook Ridge to save it from clear-cut logging.

“Our vision of a forest park that offers education as well as recreation will soon be a reality,” said Louise Lindgren of the Friends of Heybrook Ridge

The plan is for the county to take possession of the property as a park. The purchase was made possible by Friends of Heybrook Ridge, a group that raised $550,000 toward the $1.21 Million dollar purchase price required by the land's owners, W.B. Foresters of Stanwood. That figure includes a $500,000 gift from one anonymous donor.

The Cascade Land Conservancy, which originally secured the option to buy the land from W.B. Foresters , joined with a grassroots group of residents, outdoor enthusiasts, Snohomish County elected officials and that one very generous anonymous donor to save the ridge by raising the required purchase price.

Efforts have been under way for months to conserve the 130 acres of forest land that Heybrook Ridge represents. The ridge sits directly across the Skykomish River from Index and serves as a lush green backdrop for the town’s 150 residents and visitors to the area.
