On May 11 some of our members set up our new information display at the Laurel Farm & Western Supply, on West Laurel road, for their annual customer appreciation day. This is one of the most popular spring events in the area, with many attractions for the family.
On a warm & sunny day, hundreds probably visited at one time or another – the kids may have outnumbered parents by 3 to 1. It’s hard to beat pony rides, farm animals and hundreds of trout to be caught!
Still, with our partners at the Whatcom Conservation District, we were able to talk with residents, and learned more about issues related to water availability and quality in both stream & ground water in the Deer Creek watershed (tributary to Ten Mile Creek.)
