Improve Habitat at the Former Wayne Golf Course

Portions of Bothell's largest park, the former Wayne Golf Course, are a migratory corridor for Chinook salmon in the Sammamish River and potential habitat for Coho at the confluence of Waynita Creek. As this amazing property transforms from a golf course into public open space, volunteers are offered the opportunity to help improve habitat. By controlling non-native and invasive weeds, and protecting native trees and vegetation, we're able to improve water quality for salmon and down the line provide more prey for killer whales in Puget Sound! Can't make it this time? Check out another opportunity November 2nd! Please sign up so we have enough snacks for everyone! For more information about the former Wayne Golf Course, visit this City of Bothell website: https://www.bothellwa.gov/1184/Former-Wayne-Golf-Course

Help Salmon in Bear Creek

Volunteer to make a difference for orcas in Redmond! Join us at a private property site located along Bear Creek to plant native trees and remove non-native and invasive vegetation. Restoring this riparian zone is fun and helps the salmon that feed whales! Please meet at PCC in Redmond (11435 Avondale Rd NE, Redmond, WA 98052) and we will walk to the property together. This is about a 6 minute walk. Please email us if you have accessibility concerns.
