Endangered Southern Resident killer whales depend on salmon as a critical prey resource from watersheds in Puget Sound and beyond. Salmon use the Sammamish River as a migratory corridor. Improving the water quality in the river will help both struggling salmon populations and orcas. Come plant trees and shrubs near the Sammamish River! Vegetation will help shade and cool and clean a small stream emptying into the Sammamish River. Healthy riparian forests control erosion of riverbanks 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.
No experience is necessary, and all ages are welcome! Bring your friends and family for a fun and educational day in the great outdoors. We’ll provide all the necessary planting materials and yummy snacks! Our activity will consist of planting native trees and shrubs.
