We can be proud of how this project has come together. Members of this community have installed 100’s of plants, and are taking care of this Community Place. It is an outdoor classroom for Enumclaw School District, A natural area for everyone, wildlife habitat, demonstration place for Best Management Practices for local land owners. It is also a rallying point for a Peer to Peer network of specialists from all of the involved local agencies.
Together we are gathering resources to improve the way water and farmers interact all over the Enumclaw Plateau. In addition, we have improved the water quality as it flows through Lateral 5 and into Boise Creek while providing shade for the fish. Community members regularly attack the weeds and groom our native plants who belong here.
We can now visit Boise Creek — thanks to clearing a trail along lateral 5 (thanks to Wheeler Construction).
The Salmon are running and now have clear passage after removing much debris from the waterway.
Thanks to all of you!
