September 10th, 2017 by Whitney Neugebauer

Join Whale Scout volunteers as we return to Maury Island Marine Park to plant trees! Last year we planted a tree in memory of L95 Nigel. Orcas may be seen from this beautiful marine park; south Puget Sound is an important ecological area for endangered orcas. The activity of the day will be planting!
