What is Whale Scout? Whale Scout is a local non-profit that is restoring native habitat to promote healthy salmon waterways at the former Wayne's golf course in Bothell. They also lead land-based whale-watching experiences! Their mission is to channel people’s interest and passion for whales into volunteer habitat restoration projects that help support healthy salmon populations and protect the primary food source of the struggling Puget Sound orca whales.

What is Swamp Creek Habitat Restoration Project? It is a project of Sno-King Watershed Council, a 501c3 non-profit organization, in collaboration with the City of Kenmore. We are currently working in Wallace Swamp Creek Park, through the City’s Adopt A Park Program, and a second city-approved site on Swamp Creek further south. Our primary goal is to restore native vegetation, improving biodiversity and habitat for native wildlife and revitalizing the Swamp Creek Watershed. Our current stewardship is focused on removing invasive plant species and planting native ones.
