Our first ever Helpin’ Out event was a huge success! The event was generously hosted by Friends of North Creek Forest in Bothell, Washington. The group is working to protect 64 acres of old growth forest right next to the UW Bothell campus. This is important to us whale lovers as the forest filters water that runs into North Creek, a salmon bearing stream. These salmon eventually grow up to be orca food. We were joined by 35 hardworking whale lovers and local Jiu Jitsu families to spread 20 cubic yards of mulch and plant over 200 trees! Jim and Caroline of Friends of North Creek Forest prepared a wonderful hot lunch and which fueled us up halfway through the day. Whitney from Whale Scout brought a special surprise oreo orca to say ‘thank you’ for everyone’s hard work.
