Did you know that most of the east side of Lake Washington was clear-cut by 1920 or that nearly all of the big trees that we see today are less than 100 years old? (It will take another 400 years for our evergreens to reach 'maturity')! Come and see the equipment that evolved from two men working one tree all day with a hand-saw, to sky-line cable operations that could clear a whole Cougar Mountain valley in a single day. Presented in partnership by the Eastside Heritage Center and Bellevue Parks & Community Services.

This program is best for adults, but participants ages 13+ are welcome with accompanying adult(s). No pre-registration required. Indoor program.

Cost: Free
