Friends of Carkeek Park Invite to Earth Day Activities

Friends of Carkeek Park – You’re Invited!

This call for help is from the Carkeek Watershed Community Action Project (CWCAP), a group of volunteers started in 1979 to return salmon to Carkeek Park and improve the water quality in Piper’s Creek.  We are part of the WA Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Volunteer Cooperative Program and members of the Carkeek Park Advisory Council.  We’re asking for your help in getting the message out about how important it is to be a good neighbor to the creek and watershed.

CARKEEK PARK’S 33RD ANNUAL EARTH DAY ACTIVITIES – APRIL 20TH

FROM 8:30 am to 11:30 am at the Environmental Learning Center

Volunteers are urgently needed to stencil storm drains so the public understands the harm that toxic substances – pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, paints, antifreeze, used motor oil, etc. – can have on water quality.

We are also organizing volunteers to distribute letters to Watershed residents with a variety of tips to help protect Piper’s Creek. Everyone in the watershed can do things to help improve water quality and reduce storm runoff entering Carkeek Park. There are also things good neighbors can do to reduce the pollutant loading of Carkeek’s water treatment facility. Delivering these letters is a simple way to help share that information with your neighbors!

To register please call: Nancy at (206) 363-4116 or just show up at the Environmental Learning Center!

(Note: If April 20th is not convenient, other days can be arranged!)

Thank you!
