The Nisqually River Foundation, Nisqually River Education Project, Nisqually Stream Stewards, and all our programs rely year-round on the amazing support of our community. Thanks to your donations, volunteer time, expertise, and passion, our watershed continues to build restored habitat, bring watershed education to students and adults, and cultivate new and old stewards of our beautiful river basin.
In 2018, our accomplishments include:
- Bringing over 900 students out into the field for hands-on environmental education
- Partnering with boating associations to clean up more than one ton of trash from the Nisqually River
- Developing a comprehensive report on the health of our watershed (publication coming soon!)
- Logging hundreds of volunteer hours with Nisqually Stream Stewards and our awesome partners
- Planting over 4,500 trees to restore salmon habitat
- Tossing 20,000 pounds of salmon to return nutrients to the food chain
