First, looking forward:
Our Tenmile Clean Water Project meeting is Nov 13, 6:30-8pm, at Bellewood Acres Farmstead & Brewery.
The speaker program begins at 7pm, and will feature Aneka Sweeney, Whatcom Conservation District,
who will present…
Streamside Buffers: How trees help our watershed.
Q&A will follow.
And now, looking back –
but still very relevant to our speaker’s subject!
One week ago on Oct 26th, as described earlier here, we joined with partners NSEA & WCD to plant trees along Tenmile Creek at the site of recent restoration work by Whatcom County. Just as with our earlier workday there in April, we had beautiful weather and a good turnout of volunteers.All together these folks learned more about this important part of their home county, enjoyed a fine mountain view from the Nooksack lowlands, and planted roughly 1,000 trees to help buffer the creek from pollutants, and cool its waters for salmon. It was a good high-five day!
