Sharing from our friends in Edmonds:
Attached for your ‘pleasured’ reading is the Students Saving Salmon’s – 2020 Stream Team Report titled: EDMONDS STREAMS AND MARSH WATER QUALITY AND SALMON STEWARDSHIP ACTIVITIES, 2015-2020.
This report summaries Edmonds watershed studies and salmon restoration/enhancement activities conducted over the past five years in a Citizen Science project by high school students and adult advisors in the Students Saving Salmon club at Edmonds-Woodway and Meadowdale High Schools.
The purpose of the Citizen Science project (called the Edmonds Stream Team) is to advance local knowledge of Edmonds streams and Marsh habitat conditions for salmon. Information gathered is used to plan and implement salmon enhancement and habitat restoration activities and to inform public officials and the community on conserving our environment. The Snohomish Conservation District recognized student efforts to improve our environment by awarding their ‘Youth Conservation Leader Award’ for 2019 to Students Saving Salmon.
Students will be presenting the report to the City Council on October 20, 2020 at their 7pm Public Meeting. During the COVID pandemic, Council meetings are conducted virtually via Zoom.
