Spring is coming!
Hard to believe that we’ve started seeing buds and flowers already!
Thank you to Brian and Peggy for presenting to the Enumclaw City Council last month. And thanks to Ed for coming along to lend his moral support! If you would like to see the presentation, you can watch it here:
Here’s what is going on in February
This is a big month for events. If you would like to get in some volunteer time and attend a couple of events as a bonus, here’s what is coming up.
Enumclaw STEM Expo
We will have a booth/display at the Enumclaw Schools Foundation STEM Expo on Thursday, February 12 from 4 to 7:30pm. If you would like to come hang out with me at this event, and promote KCD and the Stream Steward program, please let me know before Wednesday. Come for the full for hours, or just for a few minutes.
Northwest Flower and Garden Show
KCD needs some help in staffing a booth at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. This is your chance to volunteer for a couple of hours and then spend the rest of the day checking out the wonderful exhibits and vendors. If you are interested, please let us know. You will get free admission and a transit voucher or paid parking. If you are interested, please contact Melissa Lang or Deirdre Grace. There are currently slots available on Saturday, February 14 and Sunday, February 15. I will be there on Sunday as well, so there is an opportunity to carpool with me if you want to attend, but don’t want to drive.
EHS Students join the program
The Enumclaw High School AP Environmental Science Class students were trained as Stream Stewards in December of 2014. They will be doing testing at sites 11 and 12 and possibly E. coli testing at additional sites.
Please keep testing! You guys are all doing such a great job! If you need anything at all, please just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will get back to you shortly.
