I spent a few hours this morning with some wonderful people doing some great work. About 80 volunteers with 'Friends of North Creek Forest', 'Whale Scout', and local residents joined together to help the only only urban forest in Bothell. We cleared away brush, removed ivy, repaired paths, planted trees and much more.
This and other forests are vital to filter runoff and remove toxins before the water in the streams, creeks and rivers reach our Puget Sound. This is very good for the Salmon and the Orcas.
At about 11:00 AM the entire group gathered in front of the Giant Orca. With a few Seahawks shout outs, we were able to get the whole group cheering and smiling. Then I got the shot to the left. A great BBQ cookout was also provided. It was a fabulous event.
If you'd like to get involved contact either of these groups. Every little bit of help can go a very long way.
