On Sunday, January 7 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., you are invited to help the Adopt A Stream Foundation plant 700 potted trees and 2,500 “live stakes” of willow, dogwood, and cottonwood that will grow into shrubs and trees next to Hayho Creek, a small tributary of Quilceda Creek that flows between Arlington and Marysville into the Snohomish River. The gathering place is across the street from 14524 40th Avenue NE, Marysville, WA.
During this first streamside tree planting event for 2018, you will get “down and dirty” while learning how to plant trees so that they will survive and thrive – so be prepared with clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and wear footwear that will keep your feet dry. Your efforts will benefit Coho salmon, cutthroat trout, and a wide variety of wildlife for hundreds of years into the future. As a bonus, the plants you put in the ground will help intercept water pollution from the surrounding watershed. A great way to start the New Year!
