Cub Scout Conservation Project

I was so thrilled to find a conservation project online for our County. I contacted the organizer and asked if our Cub Scout pack could get involved and they were thrilled we would volunteer to help. 
The day of the project just so happened to be the first day this Pacific Northwest had a storm. Trees were falling on the road just to get to the project site:

So only a handful of boys made it to participate but I have to say these guys were troopers! These boys worked hard in the heavy winds, mud and cold...the digging was HARD work! I'm very proud of these Scouts!

The digging was hard, we were out there in the wind and mud, and trees started to fall around us.

Before we ended up having to evacuate due to the falling trees and branches we were able to salvage these native plants:

These native plants will be replanted at the Snoqualmie river and the area where we dug out the plants will be a dam to create a habitat to help save our Chinook salmon
