Habitat Improvement

Our work focuses on improving riparian habitat through the removal of invasive weeds and replanting with native trees and shrubs. Streamside planting events engage hundreds of volunteers in efforts that help in the recovery of endangered salmon and other wildlife.

District Environmental Education programs include classroom presentations, organizing Family Fun events, workshops, and field trips for K-16 students. These efforts reached thousands of young people and the community at-large throughout Pierce County with a message of how important environmental stewardship is and provided an opportunity to act on that message.

    Pierce Conservation District coordinates the Children's Water Festival, an annual event that brings 5th graders from around the County for a day of learning about water quality and conservation. In 2015, over 860 students participated. Hands-on activities were hosted by local professionals from non-profits, environmental educators, and local and state agencies.
