The North Olympic Salmon Coalition is seeking volunteers to restore salmon habitat and plant native trees and shrubs. The goal, coalition members say, is to plant 10,000 trees this winter to improve water quality and create healthy habitat for the fish and wildlife in local watersheds.
The coalition will supply tools and gloves, but are in limited supply, so participants are encouraged to bring their own. Snacks and hot drinks will be provided. Bring warm, waterproof clothes and boots, water and a lunch.
The family-friendly events include:
• Discovery Bay — 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, and Saturday, Feb. 8
• Pysht River — 9:15 a.m.–4:15 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22, and Thursday, Jan. 23
• Dungeness River — 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, and Wednesday, Feb. 19
• Siebert Creek — 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29
Project partners include Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, North Olympic Land Trust, and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
