The Adopt A Stream Foundation (AASF) tree planting event next to Swamp Creek upstream from Kenmore’s Waterfront Activities Center scheduled for tomorrow has been cancelled.

“We were on site today planting Pacific willows and our planting area was under a foot of water,” said Adopt A Stream Foundation Ecologist Walter Rung. “The plants will do fine in the high water, however, it looks like there will be a lot more rain on Saturday and the site might be hazardous for volunteers.”

A new date is in the planning stages and will be announced soon. For more information, call 425-316-8592.
