Thank you Peabody Creek Clean-up Crew!
It’s a beautiful thing to see neighbors working together to revitalize their surroundings. On November 14th, NOSC, Feiro Marine Life Center and Clallam County Health and Human Services came together with neighbors at Peabody Creek in Port Angeles to maintain previous volunteer’s revitalization and clean-up efforts by removing small holly trees and ivy that climbs and weakens each tree and collecting litter. “Peabody Creek has been a great opportunity to collaborate with partners and promote community stewardship in a riparian environment.”, said Kim Clark, Salmon Coalition Project Manager in Port Angeles.
The Friends of Peabody Creek group formed last year with the support of the Feiro Marine Life Center and the Salmon Coalition. Clallam County Health & Human Services is a new project partner.
Feiro Marine Life Center uses Peabody Creek to provide elementary school students an opportunity to learn about their local watershed and develop a better understanding of the relationship between ecological conditions and human land use. The initiative is funded by Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account.
