People For Puget Sound is partnering with the Port of Everett to host a habitat restoration work party at the Union Slough Wetlands Restoration site in Everett. Volunteers have been working at this 34-acre salt marsh site to create healthy habitat for local wildlife like birds and salmon. We currently need help removing invasive weeds like scotch broom and blackberry to prep the site for planting native trees in the fall and winter months. Please join us in our effort to restore Puget Sound’s native ecosystems!
