We think it’s very important to take care of our Pacific Northwest salmon. We do that by being “stewards” of their environment. Stewards are caretakers. Now that you know what makes a healthy salmon stream, we invite you to draw the healthiest salmon stream you can imagine. 

Here are some ways you can help take care of nature in your neighborhood:

  • Pick up trash in your neighborhood
  • Teach others what you know
  • Attend a Mountains to Sound Greenway restoration event (!!!)
  • Plant native plants in your yard
  • Remove invasive plant species (like ivy or blackberry)
  • Learn more about salmon by visiting the Issaquah hatchery, Salmon Days, or other salmon-related events
  • Support legislation that protects endangered species, wetlands, streams, and native habitat, or supports restoration
  • Write to your representative asking them to support salmon habitat protection and restoration.
  • Take the bus, walk, or carpool
  • Compost food scraps
  • Use reusable products instead of single-use, and try to reuse single-use items, too

Can you think of other things you can do?
