BIWC co-hosted with Bainbridge Beach Naturalists a talk about salmon net pens and risks to the Puget Sound Ecosystem by Kurt Beardslee, Executive Director of Wild Fish Conservancy
We worked with COBI and the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum to create an updated interpretive sign for Ravine creek, and we expect to finish the sign Spring 2019
We sent our Murden Cove Watershed Sign out “on the road”: this interactive sign that teaches about watershed resources and stewardship “lives” at Sakai Intermediate School during the school year, but paid a visit to the Grand Forest East for the summer so that the public could engage with it
In partnership with the Bainbridge Island Land Trust, COBI, the Wild Fish Conservancy, and others, we completed the Springbrook Creek Watershed Assessment, a comprehensive assessment of the land use, water quality, and barriers and opportunities for stream protection and restoration. The full report for this assessment is pending and should be available soon!
Completed our 14tthAnnual Salmon Monitoring Program: read more about this program at our website.
