Water Changes Lives-- Take a Water Walk on Sunday

Wednesday, April 24, 2013


Here in Puget Sound we are rich in water resources. The natural beauty of the Puget Sound, Lakes Washington, Sammamish and Union is our heritage and our legacy. Mountain fed watersheds and local spring fed streams meander throughout the county.

Keeping these natural resources available for drinking water and agriculture and all the other uses are key to our regional prosperity. Learn about how clean water helps all of us here in the Puget Sound area and around the world.

Sunday, April 28, at 9am there will be 5-10 minute presentations and videos from:
  • Ann Mescher is a local resident working on Clean Water Systems in Developing Countries
  • Puget Soundkeeper Alliance will be presenting information about Clean water in Puget Sound
  • Cedar River Watershed is our watershed. A representative from our watershed will focus her presentation on the watershed
  • And finally the LFP StreamKeepers and the Lake Forest Park Stewardship Foundation will take a look at our local streams McAleer and Lyon.
Janiece Hoggatt, the co-owner of A Better Day Salon, will lead a “Walk for Water” around Lake Forest Park. This two-hour walk around Lake Forest Park will highlight local water features, rain gardens, fish ladders, streams and parks. The four-mile walk will be a demonstration of the length the average woman worldwide travels to access water for their families.

Aveda Salons and Global Green Grants have been raising funds for clean water. As part of the program, local merchants are donating items for a raffle. The tickets are $25 and the proceeds will all go to Puget Soundkeepers Alliance. Raffle tickets are available at A Better Day Salon and at the presentation. The guided walk is free.
