Volunteers Needed for Winter Plantings
Each year, Salmon Coalition strives to restore riparian and nearshore environments that will ensure future habitat for salmon and other wildlife. Replenishing areas with native trees and shrubs provides shade (needed to keep our waters cold enough for salmon), erosion control, and terrestrial insects for salmon to feed on as the make their trip to the ocean.
Since 2010, our Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) Crew and volunteers combined have planted 30,000 trees, and in 2015 we plan to plant another 15,000! This year, the Salmon Coalition is planting on properties owned by ten different private landowner’s.
Our volunteer landowners support the Salmon Coalition’s restoration work by coordinating with our staff to restore areas around creeks that are not in good shape for fish and other wildlife.
Landowners are not the only driving force behind the number of trees we are able to get in the ground. Our volunteers represent the (wo)man-power we need to plant.
If you’re interested in helping us get reach a 5-year total of 45,000 trees, sign up to help us! See our events calendar for Saturday work parties and contact Kendra to RSVP at (360) 379-8051 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
