Volunteers sought for Dungeness tree planting

The North Olympic Salmon Coalition and the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe are seeking volunteers to help plant native trees along a new side channel on the Dungeness River on Jan. 28-29 and Feb. 18-19.

Set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., these upcoming work parties see coalition staff and volunteers plant and mulch native trees and shrubs to improve water quality and create healthy habitat for the fish and wildlife. The events are family-friendly.

RSVPs are required and driving directions will be provided upon signing up. Find more information and RSVP at nosc.org/upcoming- volunteer-plantings.

Volunteers are asked to arrive by 10 a.m. for orientation. There will be a site tour at 2:30 p.m. Tools and gloves will be provided, along with snacks, tea and coffee.

Bring warm, waterproof clothes and boots, water and a lunch.

The salmon coalition is aiming to plant nearly 12,000 trees this winter, representatives said.

The salmon coalition is working with the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, which recently finished construction of a side channel on the Dungeness River — a project that created nearly 1,000 feet of critical off-channel habitat for salmon.

For more information, call 360-504-5611 or email to outreach@nosc.org.
