Everyone can help improve habitat

Get Your Hands Dirty!

If you care about whales and want to help, you are probably closer to the solutions than you might think! Since endangered Southern Resident killer whales need more salmon to survive, and these salmon grow throughout the rivers and streams along the West Coast, what happens in your backyard matters. Join us at “Helpin’ Out” events where you can get your hands dirty helping salmon survive to become orca food.

What Scout offers 13 “Helpin’ Out” events a year in the Puget Sound region. The majority of these are open to the public so anyone can join in planting native trees, removing invasive plants, and restoring salmon habitat. Some of this work is done on private property, and others with our partners on public lands. All of it helps make more Chinook salmon for the whales to eat. Learn more about how these events help salmon in the Learn Section. Scroll down to see a list of all our upcoming Helpin' Out Events. We provide all the tools and equipment! We just need your help to make a difference.
