Restore Native Plants at Squire’s Landing Park

On Saturday November 19, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., kids and adults have an opportunity to be transported via canoe across Swamp Creek and plant some of the 400 trees and shrubs that will be used to restore the natural stream-side vegetation benefiting the salmon. You are invited to join the small armada of up to 15 canoes and team up with the Adopt A Stream Foundation, the Sno-King Watershed Council, and the City of Kenmore at the Kenmore Waterfront Activities Center, 7353 NE 175th Street, Kenmore.

The objective of this effort is to establish native plants next to Swamp Creek where the current vegetation is invasive reed canary grass. Washington State Salmon Recovery Funding Board funds were used to purchase the trees and shrubs and to prepare the Swamp Creek stream-side area for for planting.

“This will be a fun Northwest event,” says Adopt A Stream Foundation Director Tom Murdoch. “Volunteers from the Kenmore Waterfront Activities Center are looking forward to transporting tree planting volunteers across Swamp Creek just upstream from the Sammamish River and Lake Washington.”

The Adopt A Stream Foundation will be providing volunteers with tree planting equipment and snacks. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear waterproof footwear.

For more information, contact Tom Murdoch at 425-316-8592.
