The October (virtual) meeting of the Thornton Creek Alliance will look at Habitat Restoration: The Change Starts At Home. Scott and Susan Freeman will tell the story of how it actually began in 1936, when Susan’s grandfather Aldo Leopold bought a worn-out farm in central Wisconsin and began the first ecological restoration project ever attempted. Now the Freeman family is part of a large consortium that have been working for over 14 years to restore Tarboo Creek, on the Olympic Peninsula.
Ashley Allan of the King Conservation District will talk about the Urban Riparian Habitat Stewardship Program, including free site visits and technical assistance.
There will also be an update on their efforts to preserve the 8th Ave. NE greenway.

As always, free and open to the public.
