We were super stoked to team up with Sound Salmon Solutions and help create a greener future! Together, we planted more than 200 trees near Arlington, WA to contribute towards preserving the local wildlife's natural habitat.
After a long, snowy journey across Washington state we arrived in Arlington ready to roll up our sleeves and plant some trees!
Let's get digging - it's time for us to bring fresh greenery into this beautiful area.
Trees are true superheroes of the natural world! They provide a cooling canopy for creeks and streams, protecting vulnerable salmon from sweltering summer temperatures. Plus, their formidable roots help to protect riverbanks from erosion – stopping precious spawning habitats from being washed away in an instant.
Trees are more than just providers of shade and oxygen, they're also a huge help to the salmon population! When leaves and needles fall into rivers, it helps create an environment full of nutrient-rich food sources like insects that provide nourishment for these finned friends. Plus, trees offer shelter from predators and other aquatic creatures - including crayfish – which can serve as tasty snacks too!
Trees can also help to improve the overall health of the creek or stream. As the trees absorb carbon dioxide from the air, they can help to improve the water quality by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the water. This can create a healthier environment for salmon to live and spawn in.
Over 200 Trees Planted!
Thanks so much to Forterra NW for providing us with an awesome opportunity to help the environment, and to Sound Salmon Solutions for teaching us how to get down and dirty with the trees!
Our unforgettable experience of digging and planting reminds us why WE DO IT OUTDOORS!
We hope you'll join us for more exciting events like this soon.
