The Environmental Science Center [2], Sustainable Burien [3], and Sustainable West Seattle [4], with support from the City of Burien, King County, and The Russell Family Foundation are sponsoring ‘Don’t Feed the Monster,’ a FREE workshop for the public about protecting Puget Sound on Sunday, March 10.

“A monster lurks in Puget Sound harming our whales, our fish, our oysters, and our children!” reads an announcement. “Puget Sound diver, Laura James, will present on the health of Puget Sound and seven easy ways we can all help protect it. Following her presentation, a speaker will talk about natural yard care and ways you can improve your yard while protecting our watershed.”

The event will take place in the Multipurpose Room at the Burien Library (400 SW 152nd Street, Burien) on Sunday, March 10th, 2013 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm.

Here’s more info:

Practicing sustainable yard care can be beneficial not only to the environment, but also to your pocketbook. Simple practices such as using natural pesticides and organic fertilizer from yard waste help protect waterways from being polluted with toxic chemicals. Keeping our watershed healthy ensures the longevity of resources such as salmon and drinking water. Correctly managing stormwater runoff on your property prevents unwanted elements from polluting Puget Sound. Also, by using native plants in landscaping, you ensure that wildlife such as butterflies and birds have the natural habitat on which they depend.
