The kick-off meeting for the Adopt-a-Stream Foundation grant will be Monday, April 7th at 7 PM at the Nathan Hale High School Commons, 10750 30th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125. They invite all of you to partner with Adopt-a-Stream and Thornton Creek Alliance as they embark on a major education outreach to creekside residents.
The agenda will include looking for areas, in terms of water quality, that could use some help. They will be canvassing door-to-door in high-priority areas to identify good potential restoration sites (e.g., Areas with invasives along the bank where the landowner would let us remove and replant a 35’ buffer with natives) and deliver water quality information to people who could use the encouragement (e.g. Areas where there may be excessive pesticide use by private landowners, excessive pet waste, etc.).
Everyone with an interest in the health of the watershed is invited to participate. Bring your ideas and observations.
