The local chapter of Puget Sound Anglers presented new boots to Students Saving Salmon at their meeting on Thursday. The donated new boots, of assorted sizes, will allow high school students to fully participate in field studies along Edmonds streams.
Students Saving Salmon club members from Edmonds-Woodway and Meadowdale High Schools conduct monthly stream and marsh monitoring; enhance juvenile salmon in creeks using hatchboxes and assisting at the Willow Creek Salmon Hatchery in Edmonds; help restore stream habitat with native plants; conduct salmon surveys; and use their field observations to identify and help rectify local salmon habitat and recovery issues.
