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.

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.

It’s important to see what we are trying to protect. Seeing these salmon brings new questions to light, and helps one understand a very complicated ocean/freshwater journey which these fish endure. Witnessing their resilience in the face of heavy-handed human engineering is inspiring. They are still limping back. We still have work to do.
