Community education and volunteer involvement are two of the most important aspects of SPSSEG’s mission.

Spring is the time that many of our education efforts get underway and we look forward with great anticipation to kicking off this Spring season at Point Defiance Zoo’s Earth Day on Saturday, April 18.  We plan to have a very tasty activity (hint hint) for those who join us there!  Many other groups from throughout the Puget Sound region also feature fun, family friendly activities for zoo visitors to enjoy.

Other upcoming educational events include:

Kids With Conservation Knowledge (KWICK)

Forest Festival Field Day

…two educational activities organized by Mason Conservation District

Forest Festival Field Day 2007

Recent events included plantings at Sherwood Creek and Powell Creek, where community members helped restore streams by planting a riparian buffer along the stream banks.

SPSSEG is also set to begin fundraising activities for our education programming, including the Kennedy Creek Salmon Trail and Sound Gardens Save Salmon, a program that links our land and home gardening practices with the health of salmon and our watersheds.  Please stay tuned for more information on how you can help, or, if you are so inclined, support education efforts now!
