Passionate about environmental issues? Community Action Training School starts in May

A field trip from the Community Action School to learn about stream restoration.

Those interested in environmental issues are invited to attend the Community Action Training School, a free training program on science-based issues including watershed health, clean water, native plants and restoration. salmon habitat and population. Program administrators support participants in designing and implementing stewardship action projects in their own communities.

The Community Action Training School, sponsored by Sound Salmon Solutions and Mid Sound Fisheries, is designed for residents of Watershed Resource Inventory (WRIA) Areas 7 (Snoqualmie/Skykomish/Snohomish Watershed) and 8 (Lake Washington/Cedar/Sammamish Watershed). If you don’t know which WRIA you live in, you can search for your catchment area here.

A watershed is a regional landscape of waterways where snowmelt, precipitation, streams, and rivers make their way to Puget Sound.

Classes are open to anyone age 16 or older in the North Seattle/Snohomish County area. They will run from May to September, 6-8 p.m. on Tuesdays, with three intermittent, hands-on field trips on Saturdays, and a final project led by citizen scientists in your community.
