First Mission Creek Watershed Forum

Thursday January 30th, 2014

The Mission Creek Park Stewards sponsored an informal community forum to highlight the ecological importance of Mission Creek and its watershed, share how we can all contribute to improving its health and the health of South Puget Sound, and encourage broader neighborhood stewardship of our valuable urban natural resource.
