Native tree planting event set
King County Surface Water Management invites residents to help plant native trees and shrubs in a project Mar. 16, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., along the mouth of Little Bear Creek in Woodinville.
Salmon use this stretch of the creek as a holding area to rest and wait for the right river conditions before moving upstream to spawn, SWM officials said. The native plantings will help improve water quality and fish and wildlife habitat there.
Participants should meet at 10 a.m. at the mouth of Little Bear Creek along the Sammamish River off NE 178th Street in Woodinville.
Volunteers should wear work clothes, sturdy shoes, and gloves, and bring a wheelbarrow, shovel, or other planting tool if they can. The county will supply a limited number of tools.
