Beautify The Watershed August 27 2016

34 volunteers collected, weighed and recorded 1044.2 pounds of litter, including a foam bed mattress from Quail Run, two lawnmowers, and a chain link fence with a live box turtle stuck in it. A middle school volunteer found it and released it into Quail Run. We celebrated with a BBQ dinner and kayaking. Youth were awarded Habitat Hero certificates. Guest speaker Rand Milan, Master Tree Specialist, helped us to appreciate our local trees, and Daina Henry, DEQ citizen scientist, spoke about water quality testing where Quail Run empties into Lucas Creek
