Helpin’ Out Idylwood Creek 2/24

Come enjoy doing restoration work in Idylwood Park just off of West Sammamish Parkway in Redmond. Idylwood Creek runs through the park and is a salmon spawning stream! We'll be planting within the park.

FULL! Helpin’ Out the Elwha River 1/27

FULL! Come plant at the mouth of the Elwha River on the newly created beach! Since the removal of the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams, enormous amounts of sediment released downstream to build the beach along this important estuary. The sediment gives eelgrass a surface to grow and also provides shelter for juvenile salmon to adjust and grow before entering the open ocean. The natural sediments on the beach are also where forage fish lay their eggs. An entire ecosystem that feeds endangered killer whales thrives in this newly created place! We'll be planting herbaceous beach plants, spreading seeds and pulling invasive species to help the natural restoration!
