Twisp River Watershed Watchers Program
In October the Methow Valley School District's 7th grade class visited the Twisp Restoration Project for a Watershed Watchers field trip.
The Watershed Watchers program brings science education out in the open with resource staff from the US Forest Service Winthrop Field Office, US Geological Service Twisp Office, and Methow Natives.
The MSRF Twisp River Restoration site was chosen to host this year's event and thanks to the tremendous effort of all involved the event was a real success!
Rob Crandall of Methow Natives Nursery works with a
group of students as they learn how to identify healthy
riparian plant communities.
Local biologist Brian Fisher explains about salmon lifecycles.
Dave Hopkins from the US Forest Service Winthrop Field Office
gets into the flow assisting students working in the Twisp River
as they learn how to evaluate habitat available for returning spawners.
|Rob, Brian and Onika get everybody fired up during a break in the program. The trio noted that, per capita, there were more jugglers per watershed resource group at the Twisp site then perhaps anywhere else in the country!|
If you would like to help us continue to fire kids up please consider donating to our education fund. All funds received will go directly to support outdoor education projects throughout the Methow Valley.
The Methow Salmon Recovery Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) not for profit foundation. All donations are tax deductible.

The Mission of the Methow Salmon Recovery Foundation is to help the Methow community become advocates for and stewards of its river ecosystems through locally-controlled projects for salmon recovery. We greatly appreciated the opportunity to host the Watershed Watchers School program this year.
