Monday, October 24, 2016 This Week's Paper


In the middle of October Puget Creek Restoration Society will do the pitfall and in-stream monitoring of amphibians, and those who would like to participate in this project are invited to get involved.

On Sept. 29 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Society’s office in downtown Tacoma at 702 Broadway, volunteers will be trained in how to conduct Salmon Spawner Surveys for Puget Creek. This will entail going through protocol via a presentation, looking at equipment and data collection scenarios. Then it’s off to South Prairie Creek and the Voights Creek Salmon Hatchery to look at salmon spawning, then to Puget Creek to do a run-through on how to do it at Puget Creek. Bring a lunch, rubber boots. For more information, call (253) 779-8890 or e-mail pcrs@ Visit for more on what the Society has going on.
