May – June 2013
Molalla River Watch Watershed Council would like to invite you to come listen to the “fish tell their story” about their habitat in the Molalla River and Milk Creek basins, with a slide presentation by fish biologist Steve Trask, of Bio-Surveys. Steve will discuss where steelhead, salmon (including Coho), and trout will most likely be found.
We hope you will join us and help complete the story of the river and creeks, adding your history and knowledge, as we discuss the results of the 2011 and 2012 surveys of fish populations in the Molalla River, Milk Creek and their tributaries. This is an excellent opportunity to talk about how we can work together to improve the streams. We’re excited to visit with you about what you would like to see happen along the streams in your neighborhood and how Molalla River Watch can assist you in realizing your goals.
Participation is completely voluntary and there are some exciting programs available that might surprise you!
Please contact Kay or Bill if you have questions or concerns, to RSVP, or if you can’t make the meeting and would like to share your thoughts.
Two topics will be presented at this free workshop. One half of the class offers an overview of rainwater harvesting to augment your water supply (and reduce your water bill). The rest of the evening will cover the basics of designing a rain garden to reduce stormwater leaving your property and increase groundwater infiltration.
Your presenters are Clair Klock, senior conservationist, and Erik Carr, urban conservationist, from the Clackamas County Soil and Water Conservation District.
Join us for an evening of fun and learning!
On June 30th at 9:00 a.m., the Clackamas River Basin Council will be hosting the second annual Tour de Clack restoration-themed bicycle ride. This event is FREE!
Riders will convene at the Riverside Day Use Area at Milo McIver Park in Estacada, and depart on either a 30- or 50-mile loop through the watershed.
