10/15/22 Orca Recovery Day Planting Event with Duwamish Alive! @ Fenster Nature Park!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Mid Sound Fisheries Enhancement Group

ORD Amy

Join Mid Sound Fisheries, Duwamish Alive!, Green River Coalition, the City of Auburn, and your community members as we restore the shores of the Green-Duwamish River on Orca Recovery Day! Our local resident Orcas depend on healthy salmon populations for their diet. Removing invasive plants and planting native plants along river banks is one way we can help salmon populations thrive! Tree canopy along rivers provides shade to keep the water cool and tree roots keep soil in place to prevent erosion from clouding the water. At this event we will be planting native plants to ensure healthy salmon habitat into the future!

The event will begin with a brief discussion that includes information about the site, the partnering organizations, why this work is important, tool use, and safety. We will provide work gloves, all instructions, and all tools. Please plan to arrive on time for the start of the event and allow extra time to find parking.

Please sign up directly with VolunteerMatch!

Mission Statement

Mid Sound Fisheries Enhancement Group works to involve local people in projects that will ensure a future for wild salmon.

Description

Mid Sound Fisheries Enhancement Group is dedicated to helping landowners and communities protect their local fish. We practice fisheries and stream restoration in the King and Kitsap Counties in Washington State. Our service area includes the Green/Duwamish River watershed, the Lake Washington/Cedar River watershed, isolated streams flowing into Puget Sound in King County, and all watersheds in eastern Kitsap County. We use habitat restoration projects - such as streamside fencing, native tree planting, and fish passage improvements - as catalysts to building community partnerships. As one of 14 Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups in Washington State, we are part of a coordinated effort to restore fish habitat in the state.
