At this meeting we’ll be learning about all things fishy and froggy in the Chehalis Basin. We’ll hear an update from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife on the Aquatic Species Restoration Plan being developed for the Chehalis Basin, and opportunities for citizen engagement. We’ll also hear from WDFW’s “Citizen Science” program coordinator about iNaturalist technology. iNaturalist is a tool citizens can use to document wildlife sightings and track changes over time – in effect, become “citizen scientists.” The tool is currently being tested out for amphibian monitoring in King County. Would you like to see it in use in the Chehalis?
Anyone with an interest in the Chehalis Basin is welcome to come to this event.

Sunergy Systems, an employee-owned solar installer will be presenting a free solar educational workshop series in Grays Harbor County.

Participants will learn about how solar reduces environmental impact all while increasing a home’s resale value, and just what makes a good site for solar. In addition, attendees will learn all about the WA State Incentive Program, 30% Federal Tax Credit, and Net Metering available for solar customers.
