Thanks to the many fantastic volunteers for spending your Saturday with Whale Scout, Earth Corps, and King Conservation District for Duwamish Alive! Your generosity and hard work goes a long way to restore Longfellow Creek and help salmon thrive to feed whales! Because of you, 135 trees were planted in what was formerly a residential area. Check out photos from October 17th, 2015 below.
Whale Scout and friends joined together to tackle a large project
135 native trees and shrubs like these pine and evergreen were planted in just a few short hours!
We didn’t see salmon this day but efforts will benefit salmon further downstream by providing cool, clean water
Fun Fact: The area we were working in had been a small residential neighborhood back in the 1950s. We found some artifacts from that scattered around (glass pieces, deteriorated wheels from a stroller, an old water heater…)
Huge thanks to everyone for making a difference! Special thanks to Michelle and Tena (pictured above) for co-coordinating this event!
What’s up next? Join us December 5th in Bothell’s North Creek Forest with free Chili lunch!
