Two capital improvement projects received NEP funding in the fall of 2017 as chosen by Cougar Mountain/Lakemont residents from a ballot of 27 projects.
Lewis Creek Park Wetland Buffer Enhancement: This project restored the degraded wetland buffer, east of the Lewis Creek Park Visitor Center, and adjacent to the walking trail. The restoration included removing the existing, invasive vegetation and planting new, native plants.
