As it developed abandoned farmland in Tukwila, WA into a plant for Boeing in 1986, Sabey Corporation took note of the humble Riverton Creek that ran through the property and emptied into the Duwamish River. Humbled by the rich ecology, native culture, and Seattle history flowing between that river’s banks, Sabey took special care to preserve the habitat by rehabilitating the creek. Community and sustainability are values that run deep in our organization.
Decades later, the development has transitioned to Sabey’s SDC Seattle, a premier data center campus and one of the largest on the west coast. Building upon our original commitment to the creek over the years, we now run a mini-hatchery and host annual educational events surrounding the release of the fry into the creek.
Salmon are an indicator of the quality of marine habitats, so we were thrilled to witness our largest salmon run to date in the winter of 2021. Knowing these fish were returning after being released by our colleagues 4-5 years ago was a fulfilling reward and a humble reminder of their importance as a symbol to the native community.
