Planting Trees Along Salmon Streams

Recently we met up with the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association for a brisk morning of planting native trees and plants along a small salmon stream. This was a fun time with family and friends, and gave us the chance to get our hands dirty and help replant a small stretch of stream bank along a local waterway. 

All year long we partner with One Tree Planted, who coordinates planting trees where they are most needed along salmon bearing streams in the Pacific Northwest. For every wader we sell One Tree Planted plants one tree. This has been a good partnership for us because we like fish, and trees provide fish in the river with the shade, cool water, and structure they need to survive. 

We hope you’ll join us in donating to conservation this year.  You can make a contribution to One Tree Planted directly here – https://onetreeplanted.org/
