We will be meeting at the Kennedy Creek, at the start of the Salmon Trail at 9:30 for a brief introduction and then making specific plans with the  South Puget Sound Salmon Enhancement Group for the days activity.  Directions from Olympia are as follows:

From south (i.e. Olympia): Go north on 101.  At Milepost 357, turn left onto Old Olympic Highway. Continue on Old Olympic Highway until you see the Kennedy Creek Salmon Trail Signs on your left. Go up forest road 2700 for .75 miles. Turn right into the Trail parking lot.

From north (i.e. Shelton): Go south on 101.  At Milepost 356, turn right onto Old Olympic Highway.  Continue on Old Olympic Highway until you see the Kennedy Creek Salmon Trail signs on your right.  Go up forest road 2700 for .75 miles.  Turn right into the Trail parking lot.

Carpooling is recommended and can be arranged with other volunteers working that day.  Check the roster for others attending this event.

The work for the day is described as "moving gravel and other things to improve the trail for the fall salmon viewing events".  Bring work gloves, wear sturdy boots/shoes and enjoy working on this trail that provides amazing educations to school children in the area throughout the month of  November.
