Mark Taylor, president of the Washington Council of Trout Unlimited, announced that the city of Issaquah won the 2008 Conser- vationist of the Year (Non-Trout Unlimited Member Category). The award is given by the coun- cil in recognition of yearlong efforts to preserve, protect, restore or en- hance environments necessary for productive cold-water fish popula- tions in the state of Washington. The award cites that of the four cities surrounding Lake Sam- mamish, Issaquah takes the most active role in saving Lake Sam- mamish kokanee salmon.

The city was also recognized as a major participant on the Kokanee Work Group and the Kokanee Technical Committee, helping to encourage other jurisdictions and agencies to save the kokanee. This included supporting the use of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery for an egg- hatching and fi'y-rearingprogram to enhance endangeredkokanee populations in Lake Sammamish.
