Come join us again in celebrating Orca Recovery Day as the Jefferson County Conservation District, the North Olympic Salmon Coalition, and Jefferson Land Trust team up for a planting event at the Snow Creek Estuary! This estuary is important habitat for endangered Hood Canal summer chum salmon. Recent studies have shown that when Chinook salmon, the preferred prey of Southern Resident Orcas, is in short supply, they’ll supplement their diet with other species, including chum salmon.

Please bring the following:

  • Gloves
  • Water Bottle
  • Snacks
  • Layers for fall weather

Where: 31 Fairmount Road Port Townsend, WA
