Outdoor opportunity! King County native plant salvage event Feb. 7

  • Written by Valley View Staff

King County is digging up native plants and needs your help.

Join other volunteers digging up trees and shrubs from this future housing site in the morning and then dig free plants for yourself! In the afternoon, we’ll pot-up the salvaged plants at the nursery where free potted plants are given away! The plants will be installed on King County environmental restoration projects, where they will help reduce erosion, shade streams and provide habitat. Special thanks to Murray Franklyn  for providing the salvage site and the City of Snoqualmie for their valuable assistance.

This project is the result of work done last May by the King County River and Floodplain Management Section. Large wood on the Snoqualmie River, at approximately River Mile 36, was cut and repositioned in response to a hazard report from the King County Sheriff’s Office.
