The Edmonds-Woodway High School’s Students Saving Salmon club’s Stream Team will be out in the community Sunday, Feb. 5 to conduct monthly water quality measurements.

According to club advisor Joe Scordino, the students will be monitoring lower Willow Creek at the Willow Creek Hatchery, Edmonds Marsh, upper Shell Creek at Yost Park and Hindley Creek, and Shellabarger Creek (starting at 7th and Fir).

The Stream Team was created in 2015 through a partnership with the City of Edmonds, EarthCorps, Sound Salmon Solutions and local community members interested in salmon and environmental issues.

  1. The monthly monitoring involves four teams of Edmonds-Woodway High School 9th to 12th grade students that will be collecting data at 18 different sites in three creeks and Edmonds Marsh this Sunday. It may be raining, but that won’t stop this group of students committed to a citizen science project to assess how the quality of our streams affects the recovery of salmon in Puget Sound.

    • Joe I would really like to talk to you about fish enhancement in local streams, including a project I have been working on for a long time, thks, Dick Lunt, TU member
