Among dozens of volunteers who took part in a Saturday habitat enhancement project were a number of Anacortes families and youth organizations. An estimated 1,300 trees were planted October 19 on Shell Puget Sound Refinery property near the Padilla Bay shoreline. Included on the volunteer team of planters were local families as well as representatives of Cub Scout packs and school district Robotics teams. The event was hosted by a partnership including Shell, the Skagit Conservation District, Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group and Ducks Unlimited. One of the Scouts was the proud winner of a fuzzy Orca raffled off among young volunteers. Also taking part in the planting event was Shirley Yap, refinery General Manager and VP, Shell U.S. West Coast Manufacturing.
