Tree Planting at Tolt MacDonald Park!
Trip Leader – Miriel Mcfarland

Join Mountains to Sound Greenway as we partner with Stewardship Partners, the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, and King County Parks for a fall planting event in the picturesque Snoqualmie Valley. Volunteers will plant native trees and shrubs in an effort to establish a healthier native plant buffer along an important slough channel of the Tolt river in a culturally important area for the Tribe, and gain an overview of the site and project, including why our work is important to the Tribe and for local salmon recovery.

8:30 AM meet at the Mountaineers
10:00-2:00 Tree planting!
3:15 back at the Mountaineers
