Imagine a time when bear, elk and deer roamed freely throughout the landscape, waters ran clear and clean and humans made little impact on the health of the earth.  Black Diamond, gem of southeast King County, has held on to this vision and is working on maintaining and improving its natural resources for generations to come.  Help us make this vision a reality.
