Thanks for Helping Friends of North Creek Forest!

It was a beautiful and HOT summer day visiting North Creek Forest June 27th, 2015. Thankfully watering new plants was on the “to do” list along with removing invasive species under the shade of tall trees. North Creek Forest protects a mile of salmon spawning habitat including Chinook salmon, which are critical for the survival of killer whales.
