Join King Conservation District, Green Seattle Partnership, and the City of Seattle on Orca Recovery Day to enhance Longfellow Creek, one of four salmon bearing streams in Seattle, by removing invasive plant species that threaten the health of our waterways.

The Southern Resident Killer Whales that call Puget Sound home are critically endangered. Our orcas face numerous challenges, including malnutrition, polluted waters, and stress from boat traffic. If we’re going to save the most iconic species of the Pacific Northwest, we must act now.

Longfellow Creek suffers from degraded water quality, negatively affecting coho and other salmon species that utilize the creek. Creating healthy streamside habitat will support salmon populations, which in turn, will support our local orcas! Come out and support this restoration project in your community!
