World Environment Day takes place on June 5th annually and was first held in 1974. We will celebrate it June 3rd this year  and the theme is “Connect with Nature.” You will do just that as volunteers will maintain restored riparian habitat along the Snoqualmie River and Griffin Creek at Full Circle Organic Farm in the scenic Snoqualmie Valley. We’ll perform restoration site maintenance on past planting areas by clearing the area of invasive plants. We’ll also plant a few native trees and shrubs. More on World Environment Day can be found here.

Full Circle Farm is a 400-acre Salmon-Safe certified and organic farm located near Carnation, WA along the banks of Griffin Creek and the Snoqualmie River. The farm is one of western Washington’s major suppliers of organic produce. They produce 75 varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs ranging from bunched greens and baby vegetables to specialty herbs and flowers. Full Circle Farm has received numerous conservation awards and is currently engaged in Salmon habitat restoration projects on Griffin Creek and the main stem Snoqualmie River.
