Join Whale Scout to help keep the newly planted trees and shrubs at the former Wayne Golf Course alive and thriving! This future riparian forest will help shade and cool and clean water in the Sammamish River which salmon use to migrate from spawning streams and back from the ocean. Healthy riparian forests control erosion of river banks and host insects young salmon need early in life. The former Wayne Golf Course features nearly a mile of shoreline and is the largest City of Bothell park. These events will take place on the west side or “front nine.” 

To efficiently water plants, there are two sessions, 9 – 11 pm and 11am – 1pm. You can select one or both when you sign up. Those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, under 18 need a signed release form by a parent. Meet at the clubhouse parking area (16721 96th Ave NE, Bothell, WA 98011). Please sign up. A confirmation email will be sent to you 2-3 days prior to the event.

Important – this activity will require lifting and carrying buckets of water weighting approximately 25 pounds over uneven terrain. If you would like to participate in other activities, sign up for the June 10th event where a variety of weeding will be offered.

This project is a partnership with the City of Bothell with funds provided by a donation from the Trammell Crow Company.
