Salmon Bay Natural Area

5300 34th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107, USA

Groundswell NW worked with the City and community to preserve this last wooded shoreline in Ballard, remove invasive vegetation, plant native plants, create a community gathering space, interpretive signage and commission a sculpture by Marvin Oliver - “Salish Welcome” - that draws on Coast Salish themes, welcoming juvenile salmon as they first arrive to sea, and adults as they return to spawn.
