Elissa Ostergaard, Miller/Walker Creek Basin Steward, is seeking Volunteers to help with some salmon-related and invasive plant removing projects coming up – Community Salmon Investigation for Highline (aka ‘CSI:Highline‘) and an ivy pull work party.

“Some great volunteer opportunities are coming up this fall!” she told The B-Town Blog. “And we need volunteers to join us.”

The first project is “CSI: Highline,” which begins with a training workshop.

“Join other adventurous volunteers as we walk the streams each day looking for salmon, dead and alive,” Elissa said.

Volunteers must attend a training workshop on Oct. 4, in Normandy Park. Sign up by Sept. 27, 2012.

The second project in need involves stream stewardship and forest restoration.

“English ivy and other invasive weeds threaten to choke out native plants, even trees,” Elissa said. “Learn about native plants, restoration, and participate in work parties every month along Miller and Walker Creeks.”

Here are details on the work party, set for Sept. 22:
