Our orcas are endangered but it’s not too late! There is plenty we can do to save them. Orca Recovery Day is your opportunity to join with your local conservation district and other partner organizations and work to recover our critically endangered orca whales.

Join KCD for our fifth annual Orca Recovery Day! During this volunteer event we’ll be restoring a section of Newaukum Creek by planting native trees and shrubs. Newaukum Creek is vital habitat for Chinook salmon– orcas’ favorite food! The project is in cooperation with King Conservation District and Ayeko Farm, whose mission is to provide a space for BIPOC communities to reconnect with the land through agriculture. We thank Ayeko Farm for their dedication to stewardship and for making this restoration possible. Come join us and support conservation happening in your community!
