Had to do a photo scavenger hunt at Camp Long. Six groups of 5 competed for the most points by finding the biggest tree, spider web, sign of birds, 2016/17 flagging, GSP signs, Neighborhood Bullies, madrone seed, a heart in Nature, climb the rock, make a Haiku, dance and all kinds of shenanigans. It was quite fun, but our team didn't win.
Got my new waders today to help with the Salmon Survey at Longfellow Creek. So excited I get to do this with my friend.
We liked this hands-on demonstration of a watershed ecosystem, the importance of buffers by planting Native plants along streams by the King Conservation District.
In the picture Tim 'distributes' chocolate sprinkles to demonstrate pet waste all across the landscape as well as other pollution. After applying rain all ended up in the creek. When we installed little sponges as buffer zones, the run off got blocked from flowing into the creek.
