In response to the continuing decline of the Southern Resident Orca population, Puget Sound Orca Recovery Day is happening once again on October 19th! This is an opportunity for volunteers to help at several conservation efforts around the sound and make active strides to help our neighbors in the Puget Sound.
Join Forterra and the Port of Tacoma at the Gog Le Hi Te wetlands restoration site to plant native trees and shrubs along the Puyallup River. Having a robust buffer of native plants between developed areas and wetlands filters out chemicals and sediment, cools water, and overall improves the habitat for orcas and their food: salmon. Go to Better Ground for more information on this day.
Gloves, tools, snacks, and instruction provided. Wear weather-appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes.
