Earth Day Celebration flyer
The Allen/Quilceda Watershed Action Team invites you and the whole family to come be a part of the celebration and learn about what makes a healthy watershed! The first 200 participants get a free Earth Day 2012 t-shirt to stamp as they explore the many booths. For a truly hands-on experience, instructors will be there to guide volunteers in a real life restoration project on Allen Creek where you can help spread mulch, remove invasive plants, and even plant a native tree or shrub! This event is free for all ages but registration is encouraged for groups and those that want to participate in the restoration project.
For more information and to register, call Stephanie Leeper, Sound Salmon Solutions, at (425) 328-9205 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
