  • Rain Garden and Restoration Planting Days: Day 3 - Kent

    Date: October 19, 2019
    Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
    Location: Hillside Church - 930 East James Street - Kent, WA 98031
    join in on 2019 Orca Recovery Day to plant rain gardens and capture harmful, polluting stormwater. Because of Kent's increased urbanization, Mill Creek has experienced high amounts of stormwater-related flooding over the past years. Mill Creek connects to the Green River/Duamish and ultimately Puget Sound, carrying pollutants from the city and depositing them directly into Orca and salmon habitat. You can be a part of the solution by helping plant recently constructed rain gardens, increasing their ability to capture pollutants, alleviate local flooding issues, and reduce the contamination Orcas are subjected to. Volunteers will also be restoring a hillside with native species to reduce erosion and sedimentation of our local streams and rivers.
