“Sammy the Salmon”

425-316-8592

What is a watershed? The large area of land around a stream that drains to that stream.

What is a riparian zone? The area of vegetation next to a stream that affects the ecology of that stream. 

What are benthic macroinvertebrates? Aquatic life with no spines that you can see without a microscope living on the bottom of streams. 

Can I see how they are linked together with fish? Look at Fresh Waters Flowing from the Video Section of the Nature Store. Enjoy - its free!

Is there a light hearted introduction on how to inventory and monitor streams?  Get the Streamkeeper starring Bill Nye the Science Guy just released on DVD!

HOLIDAY TREES FOR SALMON

SATURDAY DECEMBER 10 - 10am to 2pm

Buy a live holiday tree at the NW Stream Center...enjoy it over the holidays...plant it afterwards or bring it back to the NW Stream Center and know that your tree will be planted next to a salmon stream in the Spring of 2017!  A great way to enjoy the holidays and do good for our salmon runs at the same time.  Buy a tree and get an annual membership gift to the Adopt A Stream Foundation.

It was an incredibly engaging experience making me curious to learn more with each step...I really enjoyed the interpretive signs.  I could just stare at those underwater (Trout Stream Exhibit) animals for hours and hours.”  Jessica Diallo
