Help plant trees along Spurgeon Creek on Saturday, Feb. 12

Stream Team is seeking volunteers to help plant native trees and shrubs along Spurgeon Creek on Saturday, Feb. 12 from 10 a.m. to noon. Volunteers will meet at Circle Hawk Farm, which is located off of Rich Road near Lattin's Cider Mill.

The trees will help protect the health of Spurgeon Creek and its salmon runs by providing shade, food and habitat, and by reducing stormwater runoff and erosion.

The planting will occur rain or shine. Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes or boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Stream Team will provide gloves, tools and refreshments. Volunteers under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

Circle Hawk Farm is dedicated to protecting and preserving habitat and resources essential for fish and other wildlife. For directions, please contact Ann Marie Finan at 360-754-3355 ext. 6857 or visit Stream Team's website at www.streamteam.info.

Stream Team is a volunteer-based program that helps protect and enhance local streams, creeks, rivers and other water resources in Thurston County. The program is sponsored by the storm and surface water utilities of Thurston County, Tumwater, Lacey and Olympia.


Note to editor: Circle Hawk Farm is located at 9404 Crete Street S.E. in Olympia; however, residents find it most easily in relation to Lattin's Cider Mill on Rich Road.
