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.
10 AM Saturday November 12, 2016.
The storage container in the NW corner of the park has been removed, so here’s an opportunity to clean up the overgrowth in that area – as well as sprucing up any other areas of the park that need some care. Bring your gloves and favorite gardening tools and prepare to work hard, have fun, and get muddy!
Calling all paddlers and rowers and friends of the park!
Let’s get together Saturday, June 25th and do a park cleanup at Squires from 10 am to 12:30pm-ish. If you have a favorite gardening tool(s) please bring it—the city will also supply tools. KWAC will then host a barbeque following the clean up. Please feel free to bring something to drink.
Let’s keep our park the great place it is!!
The day started cool and wet, but spirits of racers and organizers were high. Good job by all and everyone had fun!

WEDNESDAY November 11 —– Noon until 3:00 PM
Come enjoy an afternoon paddling with your children (if you don’t have children come anyway).
Since many children are out of school with the Veteran’s Day holiday, we thought it’d be fun to have a hot dog BBQ and paddle just because. We may have some mini races or perhaps even a scavenger hunt on the water.
If you’re interested or have some fun ideas let us know. If you could let us know how many will be in your group that will give us an idea of how much food to get. Also if you have a paddle and/or a folding chair bring them as well. Contact us at info@kenmoreWAC.org.
Since this is very last minute KWAC will provide the hotdogs and buns if you would bring chips or a dessert to share. The weather will probably be rain but we have that covered!
Hope to see you!
KWAC is scheduling open practice sessions for canoe, kayak, and surfski paddlers. Paddlers who own their own equipment are welcome to tag along with those who use KWAC equipment.
Life jackets must be worn or carried in your boat at all times. This applies to anyone (general public or KWAC members) paddling at an official KWAC practice. The practice schedule is designed to integrate with the existing Dragon Boat schedule. Space is limited on the Dragon Boat to 20 paddlers.
