(Belated) Orca Recovery Day Celebration
Saturday, November 19, 2022
Join our belated Orca Recovery Day Celebration!
The original date for this event in October was cancelled due to smoke; this is the rescheduled event! Plant a riparian forest along the Sammamish River! Help Whale Scout and City of Bothell celebrate Orca Recovery Day by planting trees and shrubs to help shade the waters salmon use to migrate from spawning streams and back from the ocean. These fish are critical prey for endangered Southern Resident killer whales. Healthy riparian forests control erosion of river banks 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. Planting will take place on the west side, also called the “front nine.” Funds for this project were provided by a donation from the Trammell Crow Company.
Volunteer and enjoy educational booths and activities from partner organizations including OneBothell, Orca Conservancy, Friends of North Creek Forest, Whale Scout, and the City of Bothell. Highlights will include an appearance by Mike, the life-sized inflatable orca (weather permitting), an orca scientist ready to answer all your questions, and snacks!
