Volunteer opportunitynext Saturday, February 26th from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Clover Creek in Parkland. In 2009, volunteers planted 475 trees and shrubs along Clover Creek to help replenish the native riparian area. Adjacent to Clover Creek is a remnant of the South Sound prairie ecosystem. Building off the success of the prior project, this planting is part of an effort to restore some of the native prairie and will utilize bulbs, forbs, and other ground cover similar to what might have been on site prior to disturbance. We hope to see you there!
Thank you to all of those who attended our annual meeting last Thursday, January 27th, it was a huge success. We had a great turnout. Everyone who attended gained a better understanding of what type of work we do here at the South Puget Sound Salmon Enhancement Group. Lance Winecka, our Executive Director, gave a brief history of SPSSEG and highlighted some projects from the past. Also, Project Manager Brian Combs provided some information of what projects are in store for SPSSEG during the 2011 project season. Lastly, our keynote speaker, Joe Kane, recounted a very entertaining and informative story about his journey on the Amazon River from the source to sea. Thanks again to Taylor Shellfish, Fish Brewing Company, and Fred Meyer for providing all of our wonderful appetizers and beverages. If you were unable to attend our annual meeting, please check out Brian Combs power point presentation and some great pictures that were taken!
