Free Lower Nisqually Watershed Tour

OLYMPIA-Join Stream Team this Saturday, September 21st, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., for a deluxe tour of the Lower Nisqually River Watershed. Visit several sites along the mainstem and tributary streams to learn how local efforts to protect and enhance water resources are contributing to the health of the lower Nisqually watershed.

Local experts will be on hand to answer your questions. Participants will have the opportunity to help improve water quality through participation in the Clear Choices for Clean Water program on the day of the tour.

The tour is free, but registration is required. Residents of the lower Nisqually watershed area will be given priority seating on the tour. Space is limited, so register early.
