The “My Sammamish Forest” photo contest is part of the development of the City of Sammamish’s first Urban Forest Management Plan (UFMP), which will establish a set of goals and policies to achieve the City’s vision for its urban forest resource. The City created the contest to highlight the different ways that Sammamish residents value, connect with, and celebrate the City’s urban forest. Over 250 photo submissions were sent into the #MySammamishForest Photo Contest by nearly 100 photographers, and the 11 below were selected by a jury as finalists. See the press release announcing the winners here.
In partnership with the Sammamish Art Commission, the City is currently hosting an exhibit of these and 10 additional photos in City Hall from late July to September.
