Duwamish Alive Work Party - Longfellow Creek

Join EarthCorps, the King Conservation District, the Green Seattle Partnership, and the Duwamish Alive Coalition as we restore important forest habitat along Longfellow Creek.

Longfellow creek is the second largest Salmon-bearing creek in Seattle. Every year, salmon return to the creek but few make it all the way to spawning due to threatened habitat. This where we need your help! We are working to restore the habitat along the creek as well as in adjacent greenspaces to improve water quality and provide habitat. Join us your neighbors and members of the community as we store this important habitat!

Where: Greg Davis Park, 26th Ave SW & SW Brandon St, Seattle
When: Saturday, April 21st 10 AM - 2 PM

Ames Creek Farm Planting Event

Join PCC Farmland Trust and  King County for a planting party on Ames Creek Farm on Saturday, April 7!

In 2006, PCC Farmland Trust protected 179 acres of farmland near the town of Carnation adjacent to Ames Creek and the Snoqualmie River. Ames Creek Farm is within the fertile floodplain and includes waterways that provide important salmon habitat. The protected Ames Creek property is now farmed by a variety of farm businesses, including Michaele Blakely’s Growing Things Farm and Jeff Roger’s Snoqualmie Valley Lamb.

The planting project will take place along an agricultural ditch that connects to Ames Creek, and is a part of a larger effort by King County to improve drainage in the Snoqualmie River Valley.

Lunch and tools will be provided. Directions and parking information will be sent upon registration.
