EDUCATION: Puget Creek group seeks volunteers

jeff.mayor@thenewstribune.comMay 25, 2014 

The Puget Creek Restoration Society is looking for volunteers to become watershed adventures naturalists who work with school children.

The society’s program provides a five-hour outdoor education experience for fourth- and fifth-grade classes at Puget Creek.

Volunteers will be trained in four watershed themes: trees and their importance, water quality, stream habitat characteristics and the similarities and characteristics of native vs. non-native invasive plants.

When a class visits, volunteers work with groups of seven or eight students for 45 minutes on each topic, for a total of about three hours.

If you are interested in joining the program, contact the society’s watershed adventures program coordinator Malou Alampay at 253-779-8890 or
