Trees for Streams workshop
Tuesday, May 15, 2012, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
University of Washington Bothell
Are you working with streamside landowners or considering a program for streamside outreach? We need more trees along our streams to help salmon survive, and you can play a part.
Come to a free, informal workshop to:
- Learn useful tips and effective strategies to engage with landowners
- Explore how we can collaborate to have more impact
- Network with others doing similar work
Register early! Space is limited. To register, email Linda Grob, firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions? Contact Annette Frahm, 206-296-8013 or email@example.com
- “Cutting to the chase: Proven methods to change environmental behavior”—Annette Frahm. This popular presentation has filled rooms and earned high praise at eight Storming the Sound conferences.
- “What works and doesn’t work to engage streamside landowners”—Brief project presentations by several local governments and nonprofit organizations, followed by panel and audience discussion
- “If I had a million dollars”—Brainstorming about collaborating on a potential Trees for Streams grant
- Lots of time for networking and learning about others’ projects
- Tour of UW Bothell’s North Creek restoration project
Workshop sponsored by the Lake Washington/Cedar/Sammamish Watershed (WRIA 8). We found that 42 of our 47 sub-basins have lost forest cover. We need our partners to be more effective in working with streamside landowners so we can reverse the decline. Trees are important to keep streams cool and clean, reduce flooding and restore salmon habitat.
Lunch and light refreshments will be served.
