Rain Can’t Stop Volunteers from Helpin’ Green River Salmon

Despite unceasing rain, ten Whale Scouts spent four hours planting a good portion of the 300 trees set for planting at a former pasture.  This site along the Green River in Auburn provides habitat for four species of Pacific salmon including Chinook - killer whale chow. Thanks to King County Parks for hosting us. Read more about the day!



Record Number of Trees Planted Thanks to Volunteers

Together with King County Parks, Whale Scout volunteers planted a record 199 trees at the Maury Island Marine Park in just a few hours! Adult and kid volunteers enjoyed working and learning together on this special day. Sadly the tree we planted in memory of L95 Nigel didn't make it over the dry summer in rocky soil but our hopes are high that these trees will fare a little better.

Helpin’ Out Whitney Bridge 12/2

Team up with Whale Scout volunteers as we join King County Parks to help salmon in the Green River at Whitney Bridge Park! Four species of Pacific salmon may be seen at this park in the fall including Chinook, pink, coho, and chum. These salmon migrate to and from this area through the Duwamish River to Puget Sound where endangered orcas rely upon them for prey. Join this free, educational, family friendly event - we'll be planting!

Helpin’ Out Maury Island Marine Park 10/14

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!

Fall Whale Scout Volunteer Naturalist Trainings

Join the Whale Scout Volunteer Naturalist team! We are a friendly group of folks who line the shorelines of Puget Sound helping others watch and learn about endangered orcas. Our goal is to channel people's interest in whales into salmon habitat restoration events and stewardship actions, helping to protect the whales we love.

Jeanette Dorner Talks Salmon and Killer Whales 12/7/17

Let's learn about salmon together. In order to protect killer whales in Puget Sound we must understand what's threatening our salmon and take action. Jeanette Dorner from Mid Sound Fisheries Enhancement Group will be joining us on this and future podcasts to help everyone learn more about salmon.
