THANK YOU for Helping Restore Longfellow Creek

Thanks to the many fantastic volunteers for spending your Saturday with Whale Scout, Earth Corps, and King Conservation District for Duwamish Alive! Your generosity and hard work goes a long way to restore Longfellow Creek and help salmon thrive to feed whales! Because of you, 135 trees were planted in what was formerly a residential area. Check out photos from October 17th, 2015 below.

We didn’t see salmon this day but efforts will benefit salmon further downstream by providing cool, clean water

Fun Fact: The area we were working in had been a small residential neighborhood back in the 1950s. We found some artifacts from that scattered around (glass pieces, deteriorated wheels from a stroller, an old water heater…)
