The Cherry Valley unit is 386 acres of forest and grassland in the Snoqualmie River floodplain, one mile north of Duvall. This unit includes about 100 acres of deciduous and coniferous forest (70 acres in swamp, 30 acres in uplands). The remainder is fields of primarily reed canary grass, 15 small man-made ponds (from one-fourth to two acres in size) and about two miles of hedgerows. This is one of the lowest points in the Snoqualmie River valley, so flooding is common from mid-November to April. Cooperative projects are proposed with Wild Fish Conservancy and Ducks Unlimited to restore Cherry Creek and its wetland habitat for salmon, trout and waterfowl. Recreational uses include hunting pheasant and waterfowl, recreational and organized dog training and trials, fishing, nature observation, jogging, and picking berries and mushrooms.
