Restore a Wetland for Whales May 21st 2016

Join Whale Scout in our last Helpin’ Out  Event of the Season! 

Join Whale Scout as we help King County Parks with Killer Whale Tales to restore an urban watershed for Seattle Works Day.  Help feed our nine new baby orcas with salmon by removing invasive species such as Himalayan Blackberry and English Ivy.  These aggressive plants limit the diversity of species found in healthy forests. Species diversity creates healthy watersheds that aid in filtering and cleaning up pollution in salmon spawning streams. Healthy streams provide better salmon habitat and the chance for more food to be created for the southern resident killer whale population.
