Fall Planting at South Prairie Creek Preserve

Posted on September 4, 2019 at 8:10 AM by Allan Warren

Pink Salmon
Pink salmon return in odd number years, so don’t miss your chance to come see them fill South Prairie Creek. Help us restore their habitat on October 12th.

The pinks are running! The pinks are running! In odd-numbered years (hello, 2019!) pink salmon return to Puget Sound streams including South Prairie Creek, along with their fellow salmonids Chinook, Coho, Chum and Cutthroat. Join us for a morning of planting along South Prairie Creek on October 12th,2019 - 9:00am - 12:00pm, and a chance to see some of these fish in action.

Along with salmon viewing, we will be planting 1,300 plants in an area tucked in between South Prairie Creek and a little tributary called Silver Springs. This planting continues our work to install trees and shrubs outside of what will be the active construction zone of the project that is planned to improve salmon habitat in the mainstem of South Prairie Creek, recreate a historic side channel through the floodplain, and plant more than three dozen acres.
