The Watershed Stewards Program Searching for Volunteers for Planting Party

FORNTUNA, Ca. (KIEM) – A team of North Coast locals are looking to improve the habitat for some of our fish friends. How? By adding more plants!

Middle Creek is located right near the Eel River. It’s a popular salmonid spawning spot. They plan to plant 250 native trees to the area. This will help improve water quality before the fish head into Eel River. It also helps to improve the habitat for the fish.

At the end of this month, The Watershed Stewards Program is partnering with Bear River Rancheria for the event. Anyone is welcome to come and join.

The event is on Saturday, February 23rd from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
