Hello YAYA Hikers and Older Scouts
Our next YAYA rendez is not a hike but a service project:
It is time to give back to mother earth for all the joy she gives us. We are partnering with the non-profit group, Sound Salmon Solutions to improve salmon habitat! Cool stuff.
You do not need to be a YAYA Hiker to attend, but you must register through this email.
Join Sound Salmon Solutions on the Lower Snoqualmie River in Duvall, to help make the Snohomish watershed better for salmon, wildlife, and people! Volunteers will be removing plant fabric from the ground, along the Snoqualmie River on easy terrain, and place live plant stakes into the ground. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to learn more about the ecosystem and how salmon play a part within it. SSS will provide: Work gloves and all the tools we will need.
