The University of Washington Bothell – Cascadia Community College campus houses one of the largest and most complex floodplain restorations in Washington State. Begun in 1997 with the construction of campus, this ecological restoration is a bold attempt to restore the lower part of the North Creek stream channel and 58 acres of pastureland to a sustainable, functioning floodplain ecosystem within an urbanizing watershed. The project is unique in the degree to which fundamental theories of ecosystem and restoration ecology were utilized in the design and are being employed in the management of the site.
Have you stopped by campus yet to see the murder of crows roost at sunset? More crows roost in the fall and winter than in the spring and summer, when many nest elsewhere to raise their young. Especially on the short days of the year, the crows alight as darkness descends.
