WAYS TO HELP
Lake Stevens tree planting
The Adopt A Stream Foundation is seeking volunteers to help plant 400 trees along Catherine Creek from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 10.
The planting should improve habitat for salmon, trout and other wildlife. It will focus on an area where the creek flows into a large, open field owned by the city of Lake Stevens. It’s reachable from a trail at 2805 Grade Road. The trees range in height from about 3 to 5 feet.
Planting tools, gloves and refreshments will be provided.
