What a glorious spring we are having!
Our tour of the Enumclaw Wastewater Treament Plant was very informative. Thanks for joining us! We hope to be able to do it again. Rick, Josh and Eric were very gracious with their time and we all gained a greater understanding of what happens in a sewer system.
Spring salmon and steelhead should be visible in the creek and tributaries. Here is some video from 2013:Spring 2013 Lower Boise Creek juvenile coho and spawning steelhead video
Future Events and Training
Muckleshoot Tribal School Field Trip/Training – May 20
We need some volunteers to accompany some classes on a field trip into the tribal areas where they potentially will be doing some Stream Steward testing. If you are able to join Nikki and Dianne in helping out with this, please e-mail Nikki A.S.A.P.!
June Stream Steward Meeting – Early June
We will be sending out a Doodle Poll soon to pick a date and time for a Stream Steward meeting. This will be a chance to get together and discuss upcoming Stream Steward training events and also just chat about how things are going during field sampling.
Knotweed Workshop – June 23
It’s knotweed workshop time again! If you missed it last summer, you can attend this one on June 23, 6:30-8:30pm at the Enumclaw Library.
