You are invited to become part of the Adopt A Stream Foundation “Stream Team” on Saturday February 10, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and help plant 400 trees next to Catherine Creek where it flows through a large open field owned by the City of Lake Stevens. Access to the site is from a trail at 2805 Grade Road, Lake Stevens WA.
“This will be a fun event for the whole family,” says Ecologist Walter Rung. “The trees that we plant are going to turn into a forest that will provide shade to keep Catherine Creek cool the way salmon and trout like it, and provide habitat for a wide range of wildlife as well.” The Adopt A Stream Foundation is providing planting tools, gloves...and refreshments to keep volunteer energy up. Everyone should dress for the weather and wear waterproof footwear...its wet out there!
This event is sponsored by the Washington State Department of Ecology and Adopt A Stream Foundation members who donated last year’s 3 to 5-foot high live Holiday Trees for Salmon that will provide benefits to Catherine Creek fish and wildlife hundreds of years into the future.
