Whidbey Watershed Stewards is a non-profit 501c(3) corporation working with the Island County community to promote watershed stewardship, habitat enhancement, and environmental education for all ages. Whidbey Watershed Stewards promotes nearshore and watershed health by linking water, land, wildlife and people on Whidbey Island through education, research, and restoration. The adventure began in 1991, when students and teachers from the South Whidbey Intermediate School imagined a stream site where they could release the salmon fry they had raised in a classroom aquarium and learn more about the local environment.
Tomorrow, they will be having a work party to clear the trails and hopefully beat back the blackberries some. They have already done some work back there, but hope to involve classes at LMS in developing artwork and improving the sign board.
Are they great or what! To find out more, check out their website at www.whidbeywatersheds.org
