Join Stewardship Partners and Mid Sound Fisheries Enhancement Group for some environmental restoration along the Sammamish River in Woodinville, WA. We are working together with King County to improve salmon habitat. Salmon are in trouble in Puget Sound. Two populations of salmon in the Sammamish River (Chinook and steelhead) are listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act. One of the main problems for salmon in the Sammamish River is that water temperatures get too hot for the fish. One of the best ways to address that is to plant more trees along the banks of the river that can help create shade and cool the water down. To be able to plant trees we must first remove invasive plants that can outcompete newly planted native trees if left alone. Thriving forests and shorelines can also provide many other benefits to our community like filtering pollution, mitigating erosion and storm damage, and providing places for wildlife to live and for humans to connect with nature.

Follow the trail behind Willows Inn until it ends and take a short paved pathway towards the parking lot. Turn right to access the gravel trail that continues parallel to the river.
