Volunteers sought to help plant trees at Salmon Creek

DISCOVERY BAY — The North Olympic Salmon Coalition is seeking volunteers to plant native trees at Salmon Creek from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 6 and Jan. 7.

The planting will occur at two separate locations on the state Department of Fish and Wildlife Snow/Salmon Wildlife Area.

The creek sections where planting will occur are critical reaches for summer chum salmon. The planting, event organizers say, is intended to supplement a previously planted riparian area to ensure its success.

The total planting will encompass about one acre of riparian habitat.

The planting is a family-friendly event, and children are invited to participate. Parking is limited.

To RSVP and for more information, contact Katie at [email protected] or 360-504-5611.

Founded in 1990 by a group of community volunteers, the North Olympic Salmon Coalition is a non-regulatory nonprofit organization that works with willing landowners and government agencies to perform salmon habitat restoration on the North Olympic Peninsula.
