Event description
Join Palouse Conservation District for a volunteer planting event to celebrate Orca Recovery Day to address downstream water quality issues.

About this Event

Far from ocean waters, surrounded by a sea of rolling hills, communities on the Palouse are thinking about how water impacts wildlife habitat downstream, including the endangered orca whale.

Be part of the solution and join Palouse Conservation District on Saturday, October 19th from 9am-12pm for a volunteer planting event to celebrate Orca Recovery Day, a statewide campaign to address issues affecting orcas. Volunteers will be participating in a stream restoration project along Paradise Creek to address water quality issues. Planting native plants along stream banks improves soil and water quality, creating habitat for wildlife.

Meet at 9am the Palouse CD office in the WSU Technology Park. Due to limited parking at the site, we will carpool from the office to the site off the Bill Chipman Trail along the Pullman-Moscow Highway. Tools and gloves will be provided but participants are encouraged to wear sturdy boots and dress for the weather.

Palouse Conservation District's mission is to actively assist current and future generations of land managers (rural and urban) in implementing conservation practices by providing educational, technical, and financial assistance. Palouse Conservation District works through voluntary, incentive-based programs to assist landowners and agricultural operators with the conservation of natural resources throughout the District.
