The Duwamish River in the heart of Seattle has been heavily polluted for years. Salmon once plentiful are now toxic to eat for people and orcas. Restoring healthy natural areas such as Herring’s House Park provide a buffer for urban runoff from entering Puget Sound.  

On January 28th Whale Scout teamed up with Green Redmond to tackle invasive plants at Idylwood Park. Idylwood Creek was home to Chinook salmon in the past however more recently Kokanee have been the focus of salmon watchers. Laurie Gogic, Whale Scout volunteer and Forest Steward with Green Redmond, led the event.  Her passion and dedication to salmon and whales is amazing! She helped teach us all that saving the whales begins right beneath our feet.
