Please join the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe’s Habitat Restoration Team as we build and plant floating treatment wetlands at the Snoqualmie Casino on Saturday, November 18th from 10am to 1pm! We will be building and planting floating treatment wetlands for a water retention pond which helps treat water from the casino parking lots.
Before entering local streams and wetlands, and eventually joining the Snoqualmie River, water run-off flows through bioswales and retention ponds that help capture and filter out pollutants. The floating treatment wetlands we will be building are an additional step in providing clean water to all habitats downstream. Come learn about the work the Tribe is doing to treat & control pollutants, how this work connects to salmon and water quality, and learn an entirely new planting skill!
This event will happen rain or shine, so please dress for the weather. Rain gear, boots, and clothes you don’t mind getting muddy are recommended. Bring your own water bottle or coffee mug to help us reduce waste. Otherwise, tools, snacks, and gloves will be provided!
Some parts of this event will require heavy lifting and walking on uneven, sloped surfaces. For everyone’s safety, its important to respect your body’s limits and reduce risk as much as possible. Encouragement from the sidelines is sometimes the best support you can give!
