Orca Recovery Day on the Palouse

Saturday, October 16th, 2021 from 9:00am to 12:00pm (PT)
This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


Join Palouse Conservation District for a volunteer planting event to celebrate Orca Recovery Day, a statewide campaign to restore vital habitat for the orca's food source, Chinook salmon, and work to create better ocean conditions for the orcas.

Far from ocean waters, surrounded by a sea of rolling hills, you can be part of the solution on Saturday, October 16th from 9am-12pm. Volunteers will be participating in a stream restoration project along Fourmile Creek to address water quality issues. This is a family-friendly event.

The water quality of creeks and rivers of the Palouse have a direct impact on the bodies of water downstream. Urban development, agricultural runoff, and soil erosion have changed our creeks creating degraded water conditions. Restoration efforts including planting native plants along stream banks, improves soil and water quality, creating habitat for wildlife.

Social distancing is required. Masks strongly recommended. Masks are required for all participants, if social distancing is not an option regardless of vaccination status.

Volunteers will meet in the Palouse Conservation District office parking lot. From there, we will all drive in a caravan to the project site we will be working at. Tools and gloves will be provided.

Be sure to wear closed-toed shoes and long pants, dress for rain or shine, and bring some water!

This event may be canceled due to high water or weather. Participants will be contacted if cancellation occurs. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this causes. 

Palouse Conservation District's mission is to foster the voluntary conservation of natural resources by providing the tools, education, technical expertise, and financial assistance to support our local community. PCD works through voluntary, incentive-based programs to assist landowners and agricultural operators with the conservation of natural resources throughout the District.
