We were pleased to have around 50 volunteers come out and join us to plant nearly 500 trees and shrubs at Jennings Park in Marysville. Jennings Park sits on Allen Creek and the goal is to restore this habitat for salmon.
The trees planted will help provide shade and filter out toxins from the surrounding communities that are preventing salmon and fish from thriving in the creek.
This event was presented by the Snohomish Conservation District and the City of Marysville in partnership with the Adopt A Stream Foundation, City of Arlington, Department of Ecology, Marysville School District and The Tulalip Tribes.
Funding from the Washington Department of Ecology is making this project possible.
