In partnership with WhaleScout:
Our local orcas are endangered, but it’s not too late! There is plenty we can do to save them. Orca Recovery Day occurs every fall and is your opportunity to join with your local Conservation District and other partner organizations and work to recover our critically endangered Orca whales. Orca Recovery Day is a region-wide effort with event happening across Puget Sound and beyond.
Join us at the former Wayne Golf Course, a City of Bothell park! We will be planting trees for orcas and joined by special guests, killer whale biologist Deborah Giles of Wild Orca with her orca scat sniffing pooch, Eba! Come learn how Eba sniffs out orca poop to help humans save the whales. We will be planting native trees and shrubs in a new planting area at the park. This restored riparian habitat will improve water quality along a small stream and in the Sammamish River – an important migratory pathway for Chinook and Coho salmon. These fish are important food for endangered orcas.
