Thornton Creek Alliance and Adopt A Stream Foundation are hosting an event on Saturday, June 11. 2 - 6pm, at the Meadowbrook Pond across from Meadowbrook Community Center, 10517 35th Ave NE, Seattle 98125.
Thornton Creek Alliance and Adopt A Stream Foundation are hosting this free family friendly event in cooperation with Seattle Public Utilities and Seattle Parks and Recreation to celebrate the completion of two water quality projects on Thornton Creek, the largest watershed in both Seattle and Shoreline.
The event will include outdoor festivities with live music featuring the ThorNton Creek Band, information booths, children’s activities, and tours of the Thornton Confluence and Kingfisher project sites. Thornton Creek watershed residents, creek-side property owners, students, stream professionals, and stream enthusiasts are encouraged to attend.
Influence of the Confluence provides an opportunity to bring together people living in, working on, and studying urban creeks to partner on watershed restoration and protection.
The event will help to:
- Connect stream enthusiasts, volunteers, professionals and property owners to build partnerships to improve urban watersheds.
- Bring together citizens and stream professionals; particularly non-profit groups that can help property owners tackle creek projects with project management to acquire grant funds, permits and professional services for design and construction.
- Celebrate the completion of the Thornton Floodplain projects and their recent transfer from contractor to public ownership.
- Provide an overview of Seattle urban watershed projects, activities, resources and opportunities for volunteers, students, residents and stream professionals.
