Stewards for Kokanee, a Community Volunteer Event

Join this very special community stewardship event hosted by students from Gibson Ek High School in partnership with the Lake Sammamish Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership (UWRP), Trout Unlimited (TU), and Green Issaquah.

Students will lead the effort at Anthology Open Space to remove invasive species, primarily blackberry bushes, to clear space to native plant trees in the wetland area along a section of Tibbetts Creek. This special event is part of a Design Lab collaboration between Gibson Ek High School and Trout Unlimited focusing on kokanee salmon recovery and watershed health.

Registration is limited!

Event Details
Specific meeting location will be sent via email before the event. Volunteers will be using loppers, shovels, and other tools to cut and dig blackberry out as we prep the site for future native tree plantings.

All community members are welcome, and no experience necessary!

Reserve your spot online.

What to bring
Closed-toed shoes are required.
Don’t forget your water, snacks, and any additional layers to keep yourself comfortable while you’re out.
We will provide the know-how, gloves, and tools, for everyone to be successful.

Specific parking directions will be emailed out prior to the event. There may be limited parking and carpooling is encouraged.

This event is family friendly and open to all ages. Stewardship activities will take place on uneven ground including grass, dirt, and boardwalk trails. There are no restroom facilities on site. We understand everyone experiences the outdoors differently and we are open to working with anyone that needs additional support. Please contact us in advance so that we can do our best to accommodate your needs and/or find a way for you or your group to have fun participating in our event.

For any questions or additional information please contact: alix.lee-tigner@tu.org
